  • My most favorite lighthouse to date. Beautiful scenery. Able to walk the rocks, sit in shaded areas and enjoy the views. But the best part is you can actually go up to the top of the lighthouse. Great museum, super friendly staff. Definitely a must see!
  • We had a wonderful time visiting here recently! The best part was just walking around on the rocky shore, looking at the tidal pools, and enjoying the ocean view! I would suggest wearing good walking shoes to visit here so you can enjoy walking around on the rocks without worrying about hurting your feet. It was fun to go inside the lighthouse and take the steps to the top, but if you have a fear of heights it may not be for you. You can see down through the holes in the steps and there is a small ladder at the top to climb. Even if you don't make it to the top of the lighthouse, you can still have a great time visiting here!
