A bit boring,not much to see. The place is very quiet during weekdays. I think if you go there on Sunday when the Fish market is open, there will a lot more people. It’s good for kids.

Iconic lighthouse in the Port. Worth climbing to the top for fantastic views of the Port and behond. Only a couple of flights so not too strenuous

We visited the lighthouse six months ago on the day of Winter Solstice. Now on the day of Summer Solstice the weather was calm and warm. Some people were up on the lighthouse, but we enjoyed the relaxing time around the lighthouse.

Right in the heart of where all the tourist stuff happens here. Costs 50c or $1 to get in and climb to the top, which is fun. Some great historical displays as you walk in and around the lighthouse and great views of the town...More

We arrived at the Light House a few minutes before 5pm. There was nobody around and it was very quiet. Although we couldn’t climb the Light House to enjoy the view, my friend was glad to be there in the twilight of Winter Solstice.
