Drive down to the car park (watch out for wild ponies) and then take the short walk down to the light house bridge. Although closed off to public access, from there you can look down into the channel below and often spot seals. During autumn months this a favourite spot for the native grey seals to shore up with their pups as the channel beaches offer protection from the wild weather.
