This is definitely worth the detour to see on the coast of PEI. The red cliffs along the water are beautiful and the sight of the lighthouse is wonderful. A good place to see while on PEI.

By family came across this lighthouse along our travels and went in to do the climb to the top, very affordable and was offered a guided tour which we did. Staff was friendly and informative, nice little history stop for the kids.

Off the beaten path....but worth seeing if you are in the area. A piece of history that has been lovingly restored by locals and cared for by locals when open. These people deserve our support for their work of love.
