    We were there a few days ago and they had already started putting up scaffolding.

    Maybe when it's done we will be able to go inside and get a different view of the island.

    That would be awesome. Was it ever open to the public? Anyone here ever go in?

    Actually, I think the sign at the lighthouse said it will be open to the public after renovations. I'll have to check my pictures when I get home.

    A few years ago Paul and I got to take a peek inside the opening when there was a man doing repairs.
    We asked if we could step inside and he obliged. It was dark and dank and scary.

    Here is a link with the sign of the restoration:

    It is built from stone and stands around 30 metres tall. At the time of our visit, in May 2015, restoration work was taking place so we were unable to go inside and climb to the top of the lighthouse. A sign stated that the lighthouse will be open to the public once the restoration work is complete.
