We did the museum and lighthouse climb twice in our stay. The museum is an interesting visit, lots of artifacts to look at. The views from the top of the lighthouse are amazing. Just be sure not to look directly at the light!

We stopped for an hour and had a picnic. We took several pictures and did go into the water. It was quiet and the sunset was on it's way.

Great museum and tour of old Lighthouse. Good presentations on life and work of the lighthouse operators. Excellent historical descriptions and equipment. Very reasonable entry with family rates

We went there for the day. 5$ to climb up to the lighthouse, which gives you an amazing view. Nice for the kids, with the supervised beach near by.

Admission price was a bit much, but they did offer a family price that included my parents too! Only attempt to climb up this lighthouse if you are physically fit! The view from the top was beautiful. The attached hotel facilities look very nice. The beach infront was beautuiful!

Excellent place to stay or spend the day at the beach. Rooms in hotel are clean and modern. Lighthouse is active and informative for it's purpose!

A bit of a drive. But worth it. Five bucks to go up to the top. Amazing views. Highlight of our day. Great little historical site.

A very beautifull place to stop. A nice beach and particularly pretty lighthouse. A little disapointed that there were no public washrooms.
