Fodor's Review

More than 150 years ago, the lighthouse was built in the United Kingdom and then transported piece by piece to the island; once erected, it helped prevent ships from wrecking on the northern reefs for more than 100 years. You can use this landmark as a starting point for a breezy cliff-top walk by following the donkey trails to the deserted eastern beach. Unfortunately, the cruise-ship world has made its mark here, and zip lines block the panoramic view and spoil the location's solitude. If you are stretched for time, you might want to take a pass.
