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

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

Have loved the light all my life. It helps to define the harbour. Is also a good reference point for giving directions.

This lighthouse is right near Fort Amherst, but there are NO signs to tell you it is there. When you come out of Fort Amherst, turn left and go on a dirt road for about 1/2 mile and the lighthouse will be on your left. It is not open but you can look in all the downstairs windows and see... More

most beautiful view in all of PEI. Go there to watch the cruise ships sail in and out of Charlottetown. Very special spot for my family.
