We have found that most of the lighthouses around Pei are constructed in a similar pattern given how high the land is from a view from the sea. Simple construction and easy maintenance.

At low tide you can walk out to the light house, but you have to be quick about it. There is no beach to walk on at high tide. THe lighthouse is still operational (although declared surplus). There is no access to the light house. Good view back into Summerside Harbour

Photographed outside and sign board. What was interesting in Summerside Bay was the red water.
