Well I was staying in Summerside for business with little to do, one evening I took a run out to this mainly because there is a geocache located at this lighthouse. I had a great time! Make sure to visit this location at low tide, just google tides. Kids would love it because there are so many sea animals (crabs,... More

Took photos from a distance because we did not feel it was worth the walk in the rain. Did not see it at night so we really cannot say too much other than it looks better than most standard lighthouses.

This isn't really a lighthouse to visit, more just to take in. It's operational, and flashes at night. If you have a good zoom lens on your camera, you can get some nice photos of it, often with birds all around it. You'll see it if you walk or bike the baywalk (which you should!) and it's a prominent feature... More

We have found that most of the lighthouses around Pei are constructed in a similar pattern given how high the land is from a view from the sea. Simple construction and easy maintenance. However, on our visit to Summerside we noticed the Indian Head light and was able to take a picture from shore using a 250 mm lens. It... More

Lower Bedeque. Nice drive and pretty spot for picking up seashells and climbing lighthouse. Take mosquito spray. Village store in Bedeque (turnoff to Lower Bedeque) has great ice cream.

Very beautiful view - especially at sunset. If you have dinner at the restaurant right on the boardwalk, and sit on the patio, you can enjoy the view as you eat.

At low tide you can walk out to the light house, but you have to be quick about it. There is no beach to walk on at high tide. THe lighthouse is still operational (although declared surplus). There is no access to the light house. Good view back into Summerside Harbour

Photographed outside and sign board. What was interesting in Summerside Bay was the red water.
