This working lighthouse is in need of some renovation but it is still a nice representation. It is in a beautiful location with a great view of the bay. Also check out the Fort Amherst park nearby.

Was very interesting to see how the sailors navigated the waters back in the day. It is a wonderful thing to see which is part of our history of Canada.

I never would have believed that there was a lighthouse at the end of the road. It was a very quiet place to relax.

Took a few pics there. I was just driven Route 19 and found this nice location. It is worth a drive and making some nice photos. Also you can go to the old lighthouse at the end of the road.

Beautiful place, so peaceful! Nice for taking pictures! The lighthouse is kind of rundown but then not too many are well kept either. These beautiful historic building should be a community project or a high school project for teens that want to learn hands on carpentry work or painting or whatever it may need. I think that would be beneficial... More

Gave myself a goal of two lighthouses a day - saw six in three days. Go find the ones that are listed as closed; you'll find them, and you won't be alone.

The lighthouse is at the end of a gravel road that has no paved or gravel parking lot. The lighthouse, while functioning is severely run down, with paint feeling and boards literally rotting. Great views across the harbour and up to Charlottetown. Watch out for the mosquitos, they are really, really bad

Lovely site to view Charlottetown. It is tragic that the government has let it fall into disrepair.hope it will be restored to it's previous beauty.

This one is easy to find and would be a noce place to pull up a chair and sit at the water's edge for a while. It was not open when we were there(?? if open to the public). It could however stand a paint job.

We travelled around 1500 kilometres in a 7 days vacation and we have stop at over 75% of the lighthouses there are in PEI. We also received the Tip to Tip ribbons and certificate to prove we were at the 2 most northern point of the island in the west as well as the east. All the lighthouses are unique... More
