Expansive views are nice but Lighthouse isn’t the most photogenic. Road turn to pot holed dirt 1/2 way there.

The Northern Lighthouse is a very short drive from the ferry landing. It is wonderful spot to see the Bay of Fundy or just sit and relax. From this spot you can hike to West Lighthouse.

We always pack a cooler and enjoy a picnic lunch at Northern Light when we visit Brier Island. The panoramic views from here are breathtaking, and the rock formations make for some great pictures. Enjoy a beautiful sunset every night from this vantage point.
