What a wonderful treasure in Manteo. This little lighthouse is not mentioned as much as the others on the Outer Banks but it is definitely worth a visit. It sits right on the downtown waterfront in Manteo and there are plenty of other things to...More

Manteo is a wonderful walking town. This is just one of many treats on this northeastern NC waterfront. So much to discover in this town. This Bay Lighthouse is located on Shallowbag Bay; architecture is of the Outer Banks vernicular, and inside you'll find several...More

The light is a reconstruction and is interesting enough if you are strolling the waterfront. It is nothing that you want to go out of your way for. It is an enjoyable view and a shady spot to get out of the summer heat.

Quaint little town with a little lighthouse in it. Short walk if you can find parking around it. Not a tall lighthouse just a small building with a light on top. Quick stop.

Relax and stroll along all of the docks along Downtown Manteo's waterfront and certainly make a point to see Marshes Lighthouse. This small replica lighthouse sits right out over the water with a dock all around it. Bring food for a picnic or simply relax...More
