The western mole, built in 1865, has a length of 490 m, whereas the eastern mole, dating from the same year, stands 543 m in the sea. On the heads they carry a signal lantern and a foghorn; they resemble miniature lighthouses. During the two World Wars the moles were heavily damaged, not to say destroyed; each time they were built up again.
The two moles are a big attraction and a stopping place for tourists. Get a breath of fresh air.
Sea angling or fishing with a crossed net are popular activities.
