15 minutes walk from Inuboh train station. I wouldnt pay to visit the light house, very good views from the ground. Smallish lighthouse. More a kiddies attraction. Rather dull and run down area.

The lighthouse was closed due to the time but very good to see Ocean. Ocean view from lighthouse area is wonderful listening to wave crushing over rough rocks.

Walk around the seaside, enjoying the spectacular scenery on the rock. One can lost in time... parking was free even though it was a public holiday.
