Loved to see the lighthouse, although while we were walking up the house the innkeeper announced that she needed two more for the tour. A couple behind us yelled that they would attend this tour. As the innkeeper did not tell us this was her last tour until after the tour started we did not get to tour the lighthouse.... More

We went on our evening walk and the sunset was behind the battery point lighthouse and gave out the beauty of colors from the sunset. It a worth the stop and walk on beach, or jetty walk.

You can walk to the lighthouse at low tide and there are bunches of tide pools to explore on the way. Make sure you've checked the tide tables before going out! The lighthouse is small but picturesque.

We arrived at this lighthouse just at the right time. My notes stated best at low tide but we were not sure of the tide schedule. When we arrived we walked across the rocks in the water to the driveway leading to the lighthouse. The lighthouse was closed but we had access to the entire island and it's surroundings. We... More

A visit to the Battery Point lighthouse will take you back to a time before the digital revolution and GPS navigation. The lighthouse can only be reached during low tide and it is well worth the wait to get up close and personal. Check with the local tourist bureau to find out hours for touring inside the lighthouse. The lighthouse... More

KNOW THE HIGH TIDE TIMES when deciding to visit if you want to walk up to the Lighthouse. Docent tours are available. Ocean views are great, too. Large parking lot and restrooms available below the lighthouse.

We are locals and this is always on our list to show out of town guests. Approachable only by high tide, the walk in itself is an experience. The views inside the lighthouse will take you back in time and when outside prepared to be wowed by the glorious roaring Pacific Ocean. Truly a piece of local history and for... More
