The lighthouse has been beautifully restored, with interesting exhibits about the keepers and their families. And the gardens are gorgeous. The staff are to be commended for undertaking this enormous project.

This is a wonderful lighthouse with great views. The best part for me was the gardens. They are awesome and very peaceful especially in the early morning right after sunrise. It is a wonderful place to sit and think!!

Age 12 and under is 3.00. Over 12 is 6.00 to tour the lighthouse. The gardens and gift shop are free. The gardens lead out to a boardwalk with benches to sit and enjoy the view
