Lighthouse is no longer working in any capacity and is fenced off ... you can't even get within 10 metres. Not worth the visit unless going to the beach across the road.

Decided we had to see this lighthouse just because it was there. Information provided was informative and interesting. Just adds to the list of remarkable structures that were built before all our up market technology ( pre computers! ) was considered essential.
