3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

There are fantastic views from the hill but unfortunately lighthouse is not open to visitors. Pinky's beach is one of the best on the island.

“Stunning views & photo opportunities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

The Bathurst Lighthouse is only a short walk from Thompson Bay. It is a beautiful old lighthouse with stunning views from the base.

“Historic lighthouse on a natural island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

I love this lighthouse with its duplex cottage you can rent where the old lighthouse keeper apparently used to read by wax candle dripped on to his chest to stay in one place, before electricity came to the island.
Beautiful white sandy swimming beach around Bathurst and no cars make this palce special.
