The Lighthouse Scenic Drive offers breathtaking views of the North West Cape as you drive up to Valmingh Head. Meander up the hill to see the grand Vlamingh Lighthouse for spectacular panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and Ningaloo Reef. Be sure to keep a look out for migrating whales during the migration season.
