 What to bring or wear


Wear loose comfortable clothing.

Our visits are on sand much of the time so you do not require heavy footwear (the walk down to the light house is a gentle gravel track) - open shoes & sandals are ok.

Good to bring a towel to wipe away the sand - also swimwear, hat & sunblock during the summer months & whatever the season,

a camera & a smile!
