Unlike the South Light, the North light is a lil bit of a hike. There is a parking lot somewhat near it. Then its a fairly long walk down the beach to the light house. The light house is pretty nice, typical light house. Whats...More

A little bit of a hike from the parking area but totally worth the trip. Beautiful views of the beach.
