Lady with the Lantern
This phantom is said to be that of a shipwrecked woman who lost her child in the accident - she now patrols the beach looking for the youngster, and spotting her is considered an ill-omen. Another local story tells of a sinking ship that was once seen off the shore. When rescuers closed in to help survivors, the ship suddenly vanished into thin air.
