5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

It's a great escape to park at Robert Moses and walk to this iconic location... AND they have public bathrooms.

“Beautiful Spot and Nicely Maintained Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Located on beautiful Fire Island with a nice boardwalk trail through the dunes. You may see a deer on your walk and nice birding area. Love the lighthouse and the gift shop.

“Neat historical landmark.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Have visited a few times. Plenty of history to learn about. Yearly horseshoe crab mating ritual is interesting. Too scared to go to the top of the lighthouse as the steps are winding and you can see through them. Not to mention the rope that serves as a bannister! Nice walk through the dunes to get there with wildlife to observe along the way. Certainly worth a visit.

“beautiful landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is a great landmark sight with an interesting museum. Fire Island is beautiful, a perfect place for a walk, watching birds, breathing ocean air.
