“no pain no gain....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The 1/2 mile trek on rocks and seaweed (take good beach/hiking shoes you'll thank me) is totally worth the effort - we saw a family of sea lions upon our arrival - snoozing amongst an abundant seagull population. Travel light and stay for a while....best at sunset!

“beautiful bike ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We used the bikes included in the mid week special at Harborside Inn and took them up to the North Lighthouse- just enough of a ride to work up an appetite and to have a good night sleep- but not too much to make you sore the next day...

“What a hike!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Lighthouse lovers will do whatever it takes to get to a lighthouse! It's being restored, so it will be in good shape for summer. We also saw seals beyond the lighthouse on the beach.

“Scenic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The walk to this lighthouse was our favorite walk of the trip. The ocean is at your right and a beautiful pond is on your left as you walk towards the lighthouse. Once at the lighthouse you can take the trail down to the beach. There are scenic views and it is a very natural setting.

“Well its just a light house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Just a lighthouse, nothing more. wasn't open and difficult to get to, don't go there for sunset almost impossible to traverse after dark. Cool building though
