  • Gorgeous eating. Not much parking. There is a car queue to try to get pa king, but a loop so it’s easy to get out. The light house is on a small island adjacent to the shore. The light does work.  more »
  • Loved visiting this lighthouse! Truly beautiful! Took lots of pictures from as many angles as we could!  more »
  • The lighthouse is pretty but you can't get to it due to it's location. However the town of York is stunning. The views are excellent and the homes are beautiful. It is a nice, peaceful stop on your way up the coast. I would say it is probably my favorite along the coast.
  • When we first laid eyes on this beautiful lighthouse it was love at first site. The grounds are professionally manicured and everything from the restaurant that rest on the side of the road while entering the parking area to the small gift store are meticulously kept. The lighthouse setting with the cliffs and small gap that prevents anyone from actually going onto the grounds of the lighthouse are just breathtaking. Parking is plentiful and free. Benches are located throughout the area to sit back and take in all the beauty. Another item that enhances the view are the sailboats that smoothly sail by while taking pictures. You can take a blanket and enjoy a picnic lunch on the lush green grass while listening to the sounds of the waves crashing against the cliffs. This ranks as a top lighthouse when you need to relax and take a breather.
