Take a nice stroll out to the lighthouse and if your lucky maybe they have it open and you can take a tour. It’s a nice way to get in your exercise and take in the view.

My family and I visited this lighthouse just after 9:00 in the morning. The beach was beautiful and clean and the sand was nice to walk on barefoot. The walk out to the lighthouse is along a breakwater (hence the name) and was a fairly...More
