Historic building with ghost stories
Oct. 2018
This is a cool lighthouse. Nice tourist attraction on Toronto Islands. .Made from stone mined in Queenston. It is the oldest existing lighthouse on the Great Lakes, and one of Toronto's oldest buildings is also one of its most haunted. Great historic landmark with a great, true, story about the first lighthouse keeper. Legend has it that the lighthouse is haunted by a former lighthouse keeper... Beside of that it is a nice quiet area on Toronto Islands.

Great history. Can't go inside.
Aug. 2018 • Friends
The Gibraltar Point Lighthouse holds a great deal of history for Toronto, including being the sight of a murder way way back. That history is unfortunately hidden inside behind a permanently locked door. I would love to be able to climb up, or at the very least take a peek inside. Oh well.

There is however a plaque nearby telling you the history, which is great.

Overall it's good for a 5 minute visit but not much of an attraction per se.

The lighthouse is haunted by Muller. It is his home.

I am a native Torontonian, and I can tell you that the lighthouse is haunted.I was raised in Toronto and my father and I would visit the lighthouse where I was encountered by a paranormal force, It was Muller. I am a rhneg, I sense these things. Very high energy area.

Lovely lighthouse
Jul. 2018 • Couples
We were biking around the island and found it along the route. It was closed so we couldn't go inside it. There is a plaque explaining the historical aspect of the lighthouse. It was nice to get a few photos. Nice design, well maintained and the area around it is kept very clean.

Hard to get in but worth it if you can

This is the second oldest lighthouse in Canada and Toronto's oldest building. If you are lucky there is a great ghost story associated with it and it is told well in a spooky location. A fun piece of history.

Relic of days gone

As part of my walk along the islands, I came to Gibraltar Point lighthouse. It now sits well inland after years of service. It’s also possibly haunted - I didn’t hang around too long just in case.

Not open

Ok, if you are passing it’s worth having a look otherwise don’t go out of your way. Small lighthouse with a plaque on the wall telling a short history of the building. Would have been nice to go up it but unfortunately it is not open to the public.

Not much to see
Aug. 2018 • Couples
Really is not much to see and not so special point, but if you walk from one part to another on this island you can see it too.

Light Oddity
Jul. 2018 • Family
Not really a site worth going out of the way for, it is more of an anachronism than anything. It does add to the character of the Toronto Islands, though this is more of an oddity.

Couldn't go inside
May 2018 • Couples
I like lighthouses so when I saw that there was one on Centre Island, I immediately wanted to visit it. We walked to it from the ferry dock, a bit of a jaunt but the day was nice & sunny. I was disappointed that we couldn't go inside
