No matter the tide,this lighthouse is still pretty far out. Interesting to see, just don't expect to get super close.

Beautiful sight. Peaceful walk to get to it. Ten minute walk at most. Observe unique tree trunks. Surrounded by the ocean. Decommissioned.

I attended a wedding with the light house an the background, how gorgeous! This is a great place to go shelling, we always take a boat over. Pack plenty of water and sunscreen

Our beach house was a ten minute walk to the lighthouse. This made it nice to go and visit several times while we were there. We would visit for the sunrises and be able to get an awesome view of the lighthouse, which was closer...More

Not really. The base is no longer really connected to land, and it is rather unsafe to boot. That said, I don't think anyone is really watching it on a regular basis, so if you took a small boat/paddleboard/kayak/etc over... More

I think it would be a beautiful spot for any photo. But remember you have to walk about a quarter of a mile to get to the spot so in the heat of a Charleston summer it may be quite hot and it is on the ocean so it will be... More
