Climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse for a nice view ! They get narrower as you go up... kind of fun.

Eastern most point of the island. Well kept grounds. On site bathrooms and places to rest. Cute little gift show. We did not go up the lighthouse as it is course not disability accessible, but we expected that.

As magical as when I was growing up running around the base on a family afternoon, touring our eastern peak!
The gift shop is a great place to stop, shop & take in the nostalgia.
Make sure you pop over to the actual light house. If you feel adventurous you can pay a small fee, and take the stairs all the way to history!
It is a great view! Be prepared to climb, test your balance a wee bit on the way down and follow the signs.
Stop & embrace the history on each of the floors.
When you get to the top, it is as if you are looking through generations of light keepers eyes!

Magic

The “glass” at the top is worn and your photo won’t be crystal clear, but you can feel the air and the way rings use to be!

Happy lighthousing!

Easternmost point on PEI - nice views of the lighthouse. Nice little gift shop with some local crafts. Look for seals in the ocean!

Head out to this eastern point of PEI for a treat. The scenery on the way there is beautiful. We went on a rainy, windy day, but it was still great. Pay the $5 admission to climb to the top of the lighthouse for gorgeous,wild, and windy views.

It is a long way out there but very cool. The gift shop and restrooms just opened which was a plus. Very windy and cold but we are glad we went. Fog horn lighthouse dating back to 1885

Original lighthouse that you can go up to top and walk outside-fantastic views of Northumberland Straits and Souris! Has amazing sea glass displays and crafts. Well worth the time and $5 entry. You get the real feel of times gone by!
