“Gorgeous view!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time"

A quote from the sign at the lighthouse that I will take with me wherever I go. The drive to the lighthouse is full of beautiful beaches and perfect photo ops. A little of a drive depending on where you are coming from. The view from the rocks is spectacular, during the day or at night. A visit during the day is nice because there is seating around that let's you sit, eat and lime while enjoying the beautiful view. Small parking lot so it may be best to visit during the week rather than the weekend.

“Unusual Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

The ride to the lighthouse took us past several beaches that we got out to look at. The ocean view from the grounds of the lighthouse were spectacular. On the grounds of the lighthouse, we saw the first of many termite nests. There were some almond trees, but the nuts were not ripe to eat. Vultures were everywhere! It is too bad the grounds are not kept up better. The trash can was full and it appeared that it had not been emptied for some time. We continued on our way to the end of the road along the northern coast. It was nice to see the country side and small villages. Road work was being done. I am glad we were not driving! We took a picnic lunch, but there are places along the way to eat. I am glad we went.

“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The area is great for picnics, sunbathing, and surfing. The area beaches will runnout of parking space during the holidays, such as easter weekend. The drive is very scenic as travel is thru various villages.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

A very beautiful lighthouse, build with Queen Victoria's initials on! Lovely views out to see. Saw a green turtle swimming around off the rocks. Lovely spot for a picnic as there are lots of tables in shady spots under trees.

“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Visited the light house as I travelled back from Grande Rivière.
Didn't expect much. Free entry.
But was surprised and the views surpassed my expectations.
The grounds are clean and well kept. Places to have a picnic.
But there is a walk way onto the rocks at the back.
That's where the magic occurred. The sea was rough and as the waves crashed against the rocks lovely sea spray came towards us. Also a few blow holes.
We decided to climb to the bottom. Got some lovely pics.
Great day out.
Excellent picture point.
