Lion's Head Lighthouse

About
A wonderful little lighthouse located at Lion's Head on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario. It's the gateway to a municipal harbour, one of the deepest on Gerogian Bay. A peaceful place to relax in the summer and take in the crystal clear waters and magnificent cliffs just opposite the lighthouse. Winter is just as wonderful as the ice builds up on it and the stormy waves crash over the jetty. Well worth a stop in Lion's Head to see it.

The place is pretty well ruined by the huge influx of people. Parking, littering, dog droppings, and trespassing are just some of the problems that have increased exponentially. There is nothing like being told you don’t own the land that has been in your family for 6 decades.

The lighthouse has still not be replaced although they are working on it. Lion’s Head has be swamped by tourist. Not enough infrastructure. Parking inadequate and trash and feces, both dog and human, has become a real problem. Trespassing has become the norm. Please stay away.

Lighthouse replaced
Oct. 2020
The lighthouse has been replaced, and looks almost identical to the old one that got blown down during a winter storm. It has been oriented differently to lessen the effects of the wind. There is a video online that shows the top being lowered into place.
The beach was deserted on the cold and windy day, but it still looked beautiful, across the bay to the lion's head promontory.

Great quiet place to stay with nice clear water.

Great quiet place to stay with nice clear water. The beach is very rocky and without sand. We were there in September 2019 and had to put on a sweater because of the wind. Nevertheless, it is worth visiting this place.

Nice view from lighthouse
Jul. 2019 • Friends
The lighthouse has a very beautiful beach, the water is crystal clear, but very cold, it also has no sand but large stones. The lighthouse is very well maintained and is in front of the port.

Gone with the wind and waves.

The lighthouse was damaged in late October 2019. It was completely destroyed by a major storm January 12, 2020. All that is left is the concrete footing and debris.

Small but impressive
Oct. 2019
This is a smaller lighthouse but it is impressive with the clean clear water around the lighthouse. There are several different angles that you can get a look at the lighthouse from up-close to reflections in the water.
