Points of Interest

1. Parking

It is free to park here. Remember, you need to wait until low tide to make it safely to the lighthouse for a tour. You'll be climbing over drift wood and wet rocks so make sure you have appropriate footwear to get over to the lighthouse!

This is one of the oldest lighthouses on the coast. Volunteers in the summer months often offer free tours of the Lighthouse on busy weekends. If this is the case it is always nice to leave a tip and a donation towards the upkeep of the facilities. Keep your eye out along the shore and out on the docks for a multitude of sea life as well!
