Iconic lighthouse located directly across from a fantastic beach. The lighthouse itself was smaller than I imagined it to be. The grounds were very well kept and it was a lovely attraction to see while we were here. We spent a bit of time walking...More

We love driving to the lighthouse to view the ocean and take photos in this area. There is a lot of history associated with the lighthouse and a very interesting and beautiful area to walk.

Most light houses I have visited allow you to be on the grounds of the structure. Not this one. Unfortunate we could not even go into the yard around the building.

Slightly disappointed we could only see the lighthouse from afar. We have seen lots and this one is inland a bit and not on the water as most others have been. Parking is only 30 mins due to the people who like to hit the...More
