nice quiet place but we didn't think there was much to see here. The name is a bit misleading as there are no seals to see. The lighthouse is quite nice to see though

What a lovely stop! Sea, sand and flowers - lovely even in the wind and the cold. Take a drive and say you've been there!

Seal point is well worth a visit and allow a few hours.There is a lighthouse that was closed when we were there but I think it is normally open to the public. The nature reserve is worth the time all by it's self.
