If you are visiting the Island, this is a must.The climb is worth every step and is not a difficult one. If you can walk , you can climb the stairs up to the top.

We stayed at the accommodation attached to the lighthouse, but we were able to take a tour of the lighthouse and see and feel the history of it. It’s a lovely place and worth the stop

Historic lighthouse on the PEI sandy shores, not far from Tignish. The climb to the top of this lighthouse is well worth the effort. Seeing the massive light and massive views are alone worth the short climb effort to the top. Lots of historic information...More

Quaint lighthouse in great location! Awesome views great for taking photos. The beach on the other side of the dunes is beautiful, quiet and seems to go on forever.

My favourite lighthouse of the entire trip! We drove from West to East while in PEI! The exterior is beautiful and navy/black in colour! You're able to climb to the top as well, which is well worn it!
