This is a beautifully well kept light house with beautiful views. Facility overlooks the water. There is an adjacent beach with Chowder House restaurant at the bottom of the hill. There is a charge to climb lighthouse.

Definitely one of the best, and historic, lighthouses on PEI to visit, great views to boot! One good thing about the island, almost all the lighthouses are accessible by car as compared to NB or NS.

One of the only lighthouses we came across that you could go in. Awesome location and stunning views. If you go at low tide you can beach comb for hours.

Nice views. Only round brick lighthouse on the island. Very tall. You can go up to the top for an extra fee. Nice water views around it. And a restaurant just steps away

We were recommended to visit this on our way to get the ferry back to Nova Scotia from PEI by our B&B host in Charlottetown. Lovely views from the ground and you can walk all the way round this lighthouse on grass surrounding it. Quite...More

I had some time on my last day on PEI, so I decided a drive out to the Point Prim lighthouse would be a perfect way to spend a couple of hours. The site where the lighthouse stands is small, but there’s a great little...More
