If you are touring lighthouses you must include this one. It's a walk to get out to it but, it's well worth the extra effort. It's about a mile each way and on a clear day you can really see the sights when you climb up into the tower. I would suggest you wear good walking shoes with support as the rocks are somewhat difficult and uneven. As earlier suggested, stop and take in the views as you walk. And yes, you can take a picnic lunch and just enjoy the atmosphere. There is no fee.
