The lighthouse is situated on a rock that is a tidal island. A causeway links the lighthouse to shore at low tide. There is an alarm to warn visitors to clear the causeway as the tide rises.
The lighthouse was the first in the British Isles to be built of reinforced conrete and its light is visible for 18 miles (29 kms) in clear weather. The lighthouse is connected to the shore by a causeway that is covered at high tide. The rush of the tide around this part of the coast can be very dangerous but it is a beautiful place, whether in broad daylight or at sunset. Also an excellent spot for ND photography.
