So excited that we got to climb all levels of this light house with our 4 year olds. We enjoyed the history provided to us before the climb and that it was very affordable. The views were breathtaking. A must stop if you visit the...More

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

After coming from Nova Scotia on the ferry we stopped off at the lighthouse on our way to Charlottetown. A beautiful spot and this historic lighthouse is worth the drive. I believe that in a few weeks it is open for tours inside.
