Love this lighthouse! Small but beautiful views - great place to sit and watch the ocean or bring a light picnic lunch. There is a gorgeous fisherman's memorial there.

Such a beautiful location. Worth to drive and has a great place for a picnic lunch. Please go slow on the road, it is very narrow and doesn’t allow much room when there are pedestrians. Parking can also be a challenge.

lovely little light house. We got there just before dusk, so we didn't have a ton of time. it's a beautiful spot to take photos. Would love to have spent more time, but it really is a wonderful spot.

Love visiting all the light houses in the area..they always seem to offer a good view and photo op. Not much to do here except to stop and enjoy the scenery. Nice little addition to our trip.

We had a great time riding out to this Lighthouse. It's definitely a drive off the main highway especially with the "detour" due to road work. It was still definitely worth going. Picturesque scenery along the way and once you get out there the views...More

Be prepared for a long drive to the lighthouse as it is quite a distance from Highway #1 whether you are coming from the North or South. You do get to see some scenic rural areas that are especially picturesque with fall foliage and old...More
