Cool caves to explore, complete with glowworms. You need to ask the owner and pay a donation for access, but well worth it.

The drive to the lighthouse is pretty crazy, with a rugged access road. Walk to the lighthouse and get a real ‘edge of the earth’ feeling. You can keep driving up the coast to White Bay (you need to stick to the road as it is private land all around).
