We didn't pass up the chance to visit Cape Bojeador. However, the tower was closed to the public. We just took photos and enjoyed the fantastic view at the top.

After the 5-10minute walk to the light house, the view is very refreshing and it is worth every sweat. Don't forget to go up to where the tower is and enjoy the great view.
