“this is God's country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

don't speed. not one mile per hour. other than that you will have a great time..

down the hatch- deck is good, indoor restaurant sucks. this place has been here forever and I'm sure the experience changes, but we had a really bad dinner here, followed by a couple great experiences on the deck, with sandwiches, etc. don't go here looking for chilean sea bass. fried grouper? great.

“The Lighthouse and Museum are Educational and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Really an amazing story about life for the light keeper and family who lived there. It seems impossible that it was so isolated and really an tough life but it wasn't that long ago and it isn't that far from everything modern now.
Climb the lighthouse for a great view!

“I've been a tourist living here for 35 years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I came her in 1977 and have not been able to leave. Beach, biking, hiking, birding, fishing, dancing, boating and surfing. What better to jump on your bike and head to the Jetty to see if surf is up or if they are biting.

Below is one such trip when I ran into a crew from Guiness Beer who had just inducted Bernie (Who works at NY Bagel in the Shores) into the Guiness book of World records for "surfing a 30 second wave whilst spinning a basketball".

“Fun afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Nice grounds and interesting history. Need to be physically fit to reach the top of the lighthouse. Stop at the Inlet bar for cocktails after your visit.
