The point itself is dramatically scenic. We did not pay a fee to go up the lighthouse since many reviewers indicated how steep the access was. Nevertheless the surrounding is stunning. Worth the drive to the point.

I enjoyed stepping back in time while climbing the steps of the Point Prim Lighthouse. It is a gem of old architecture and I can just imagine being the keeper back in the day.

For just $5.00 you are given access to climb the steep steps from landing to landing all the way to the top. There are docents that offer a tour and to answer your questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this venue.

This has to be one of the most beautiful places on the island- amazing view, history and beach. Not to mention next to the chowder house and their outstanding food.

Beautifull to look, amazing architectural tresor and full of historical artifact, this lighthouse is worth the detour. you can enjoy a complete visit from bottom to top for only 5$ per adult. dont loose your time over smaller, less welcoming lighthouse.

Way over priced for what they offered. New England styled chowder was 'brothy'. I've been to beautiful chowder houses near lighthouses up and down the East coast and this was by far, the worst!

Hello, you ate at the Point Prim Chowderhouse which is right next door to the lighthouse. We do not serve food at the lighthouse.
