Great to Sea!

I loved visiting my first lighthouse in PEI. It is a very well kept sight. We went to the top of the lighthouse and the view is spectacular. A must visit.

Great little souvenir shop in lighthouse. We could see a couple of seals out in the water. Nice little drive to get there.

Do pay and up to the top of the lighthouse as the views are worth every penny. Nice shop with plenty of souvenirs if that is what you are looking for and the cafe is very welcome when the wind is blowing strong. Well worth the trip and not crowded when there on a blowy September Monday

9th October and there is very little open on the north east coast on a Sunday. So we were so pleased to find this stunning lighthouse on the far easterly point of PEI. Best of all there were clean restrooms and a cafe which was opened. Hats off to the gentleman running this small eatery. We had the seafood chowder... More

The raw ocean against the red beach rocks is a must see. Strong wind almost blew the wife away!!! Interesting place to visit and let your mind wander of the old days.

A long drive but worth the time. No guide here, but nice collection of photos and such all the way to the top. Great views from the top of the sea. There was a nice gift shop and restaurant.

Iconic PEI lighthouse. Eastern most point of the island, Definitely worth a visit. Take a few minutes to enjoy the stunning views of the rugged coastline and where the tides meet. Interesting little gift shoppe also on site. Take the time to browse, can find a few hidden gems, Lighthouse can get busy with tour groups. Take care in parking... More

It's a small but interesting place to see. You can actually see Nova Scotia from there. The gift shop is not too bad, prices are better than Charlottetown. There is snack bar...4$ for grill cheese
