Beautiful and wild.....really enjoyed even though we WALK to it (since Kerry cannot read a map (perhaps the map was not to scale))

“Long walk but rewarding of you are up for it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

If you don't mind walking in deep sand to get here, then it's no problem. I really don't like that so I was slightly turned off. You cannot go inside this lighthouse but if we had more time we would have walked around more of the trails leading around the lighthouse thru the dunes.

“Good ride, good walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We rented bikes and rode out to the lighthouse. One must park their bike at the end of the road and hike down the beach to reach the lighthouse. I do not know if one can go in during high season, but we could not enter. We walked around the lighthouse, over to the beach, and back to our bikes. It was a pleasant excursion.

“great place for a picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

What a great place to pack a picnic and watch the waves crash at the north point. If you get there later in the afternoon you can see the ocean sparkle from the sun light.
