We visited off season on a warm September Saturday. I expected it still to be busy but it wasn't. We went to the lighthouse first and the assistant there was so lovely, warm and welcoming. She was able to give us lots of information about the lighthouse and the area. Our dogs were welcomed also with a bowl of water at the door ready for any four legged visitor. Next was the beach and for the most part we had it to ourselves, fantastic, a must go place to visit and we will be back.
