We were staying at a cottage 5 min down the road so we went to see it and took a pic. There is a power line/tower thing right beside it which makes photoshooting it difficult. Cant go in it. Glass bottle houses are 2 min...More

This is a lighthouse that cannot be entered, but there are some great views from its location and, if the weather is cooperating, some good photo opportunities.

We stayed at the hotel down the road, and came across this lighthouse riding our bikes. It definitely is a "must see" in the area. There's not much else around, And while we pulled our bikes over to walk up the sand dune and take...More

You have to look hard and you'll probably find the fishing harbour close by before you figure out which dirt road to take, but find it and take it, you'll love the view. A PEI erosion study is marked on the point with metal pegs,...More

Not much of a lighthouse but the setting is amazing. If you can find the road that leads into it you may be pleasantly surprised

​Nice stop on the way to North Cape. Very picturesque with the lighthouse, bluffs, and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Stayed 40 minutes.

It is a quaint little area. Beautiful scenery, sweeping vistas of farm, field , and ocean. Island crafts, points of interest, and delicious food on the roadside. So peaceful and serene. You'll enjoy it .

We drove out about a mile or so on a dirt road and parked in the grass near the lighthouse. The views were incredible because the land juts out into the water. We saw the red cliffs, the town just east, and out to sea...More

This lighthouse is beautiful. First of all, the drive to the lighthouse is stunning. Red earth dirt roads, no traffic, fields of gold and wavy grasses? Gorgeous. Then you get to the lighthouse and it's so rustic looking and beautiful that you can't help but...More
