First time I have ever had the opportunity to visit a lighthouse up close and personal. Made for some great photos and walking along the scenic red shore. Don't walk around in the bushes though, there is poison ivy nearby!

A working lighthouse with is very typical island. It used to have a restaurant but that's moved down the street. Both are an excellent take.

If you're in the area, it's worth the drive out to West Point to see the lighthouse. The local community runs the museum and inn on the site. There are plenty of artifacts and explanatory posters in the lighthouse, giving its history and explaining how it worked over time. One of the rooms at the bottom is set up to... More

Planned to stay here actually, but because of its high price, I stayed elsewhere. However, with its unique design and beautiful beach and scenery, how could we not go there? A very nice drive there with lots to see. It would be nice to stroll along the beach as well. Worth a trip there. May be next time I will... More

Warmer water, beautiful beach to walk and collect sea glass. Great place to dig for clams. The lighthouse is beautiful but you have to pay to go on the top of it. The stairs leading to it can scare children off. It was the most beautiful lighthouse I have seen in the maritimes, and it has an Inn there where... More

We have visited this back in 2008 and really enjoyed the museum and view from the top. As I recall it was not a taxing hike up to the top. It is still in decent shape, but we got there after it closed on our trip to the north cape. There is a very nice view from the top of... More
