  • Definitely worth the climb. If you are in any way adverse to enclosed areas, please know that the stairs are a bit tight and you will need to stop and allow others to come down (or up) The stairs at the very top are steep. There are some really great spots to explore along the coastline and an old bunker to check out. Be aware that the edge of the cliff is dangerous and can give way under your feet, so it is best to stand back a bit.
  • Typical 'end of the world' set up. Tacky shops huddle around the main attraction, which is a typical French Lighthouse. Views are spectacular as the Atlantic meets the Bay.
