My wife loves light houses and this one is unique in that is only accessible during a low tide. Check the tide tables and pay a visit to this historic little light house.

Lovely walk to the lighthouse, We were too late for a tour, but enjoyed the views, and the flora. Just sat and listened to the waves.

Visited the lighthouse in early July on a family trip. Lighthouse and view were awesome. Saw a few seals on rock near the lighthouse.

We liked that we could walk through the ocean bottom at low tide to get to the lighthouse. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. The areas were small and tight for people to stand in. There was not water facility to wash your feet after walking in the sand and the mud.

We did not take the tour because they were closed but walked up there in the evening right before sunset. It closes to all public after sunset. Just walking around on our own was nice. It was beautiful up there and a nice evening walk.

Quaint old lighthouse. Great history to be told here. Just make sure the tide is not coming in before you walk out there.
