  • Went close to 4 PM on a clear day in the off season. 185 steps to the top with multiple levels where the history of the lighthouse is discussed. Amazing views at the top but beware the winds can be strong. Felt like my phone was going to fly out of my hands. The gift shop is right next door and its run by the lighthouse keeper themselves
