Nice Lighthouse built on rocky coast, with some short hiking trails around, interesting story of the history, but it was being renovated when we were there

It is there. looks like a tourist sort of thing. My best lighthouse vote goes to Rose Blanche, or the mystery lighthouse north of St. Barbe.

We were there later on in the afternoon, and we just toured around the place, great scenery. I was amazed with everything about the Lighthouse, it was disappointing we couldn't go inside the lighthouse to have a look around.

It's only a short drive from Rocky Harbor. It is the light house as seen from Rocky Harbor. To a landlubber like us: all ocean side vistas are definitely captivating. Although this is atypical of light houses in Nfld, up and down the trails provides different views and perspectives. A good place for a short visit or long if U... More

There are walking trails to take in, but the scenery near the lighthouse was breath taking. It's too bad that you can't actually go into the original lighthouse building or the lighthouse itself (at the Point Amour Lighthouse in Labrador you can go all the way to the top). The interpretive space is a large tent outside the main building... More

We visited on a very windy day and the scenery was breathtaking. We visited the tent and talked to the guide. He was very informative. His uncle was one of the children that grew up in the lighthouse.

I drove out here each night while staying in Rocky Harbour to watch the sunset. The lighthouse is situated on the edge of a steep cliff which affords great panoramic views of Rocky Harbour and several nearby mountains including Gros Morne. The lighthouse itself is quite attractive and clearly well cared for. It has a large living area for the... More

This lighthouse is very beautiful on the outside but unfortunately when we were there they were working on this inside so we could not go in . There was however a tent set up outside with a very nice young man telling us all about the history of it .
