Visited in April 2018. Short walk from Monteo waterfront. Unable to access the second floor (roped off). Small amount of historical plaques.

Very cute replica of an older lighthouse. Functional light with 4th order Fresnell lens in place. Interesting exhibits, but you can’t climb it. Parking is free but fills up quickly.

Very peacefully and view of water gives relaxation to the eyes. My friends and me spend almost more than a hour to take pictures and we also enjoyed the air. Lighthouse is well maintained. Must Visit.

A quaint building with sufficient information to make the visit worthwhile. Built on the water, this old lighthouse provided the opportunity to just stand around its sides and enjoy the view of the boat slips and the harbor. In the midst of going around town,...More
