Up to this point it is possible to drive by car. The path (see following pictures) from the Cape up the lighthouse is really beautiful, with magnificent views on bays which are pretty inviting for taking a swim (although they are cold! Brrr!). Following the path you have to overcome a difference in altitude of approximately 400m, but on the way you walk through an abundance of grasses, flowers, cacti and bushes unknown in Europe.
