  • Great views from the little park near the bridge. Quiet area in a nice setting. Great photo ops. Enjoy.

  • Wonderful spot to kick back and relax, have a picnic, AND bring the kids! You can people/boat watch, bring a fishing pole and see what you can catch. It’s an extremely busy inlet, lots of boats going back-and-forth, those are always fun to see. There’s a small beach but you can only get to it via boat, but people really seem to like it. The lighthouse itself is extremely picturesque, so don’t forget to take some snaps! It’s shaded and comfortable even in this hot Florida summer. It’s a terrific spot, there’s limited parking so get here early or just get lucky.
  • We stayed in the three cottages with our family for an anniversary. For cottages that are over 100 years old there in excellent shape well maintained and a great location. All the family went up to the top of the lighthouse and enjoyed the view and the informative lecture from the author of the book on the lighthouse. Planning on going again. The Coast guard auxiliary and the woman in charge of running the area do a phenomenal job.
