My wife and I rented the Armory Chapel next door to the Lighthouse for our recent wedding. The lighthouse staff handles the chapel and the keys. They did an excellent job with our reservations and picking up the key was a breeze. The kind lady even gave my wife a hug and wished us well in our future. They sent... More

This lighthouse was nothing like the lighthouses on the east coast, but it was interesting and perfect for a Florida beach. The museum was informative and the people working at the museum eager to answer questions about the area. Great photo ops!

This is a must do to find out the history of Boca Grande. Lots of great old photos also. A cute museum store with fairly marked prices.

Loved shelling on this beach and visiting the lighthouse museum. Amazing old artifacts that they display proudly and I only wish I could remember all the details that they covered and told you about the history of the old lighthouse! Neat gift-shop to take home a memory from a really special place!

We always go to the Boca Grande Lighthouse when we are in the area to visit family. The exhibit is interesting (lots to read), and the setting is priceless. I've taken countless photographs. The beach wraps around the point, and the shelling is particularly good on the west side of the point, walking north, around the rocks at the north... More

Count on spending $6 to go across a bridge and $3 (on the honor system) to get in the state park. To get thru the the various small rooms in the light house should take no longer than 20 minutes to read about the history of the island, the lighthouse and nearby area. Plenty of shells on the beach -... More
