This Lighthouse is in a beautiful location surrounded by well maintained gardens thanks to the hard working volunteers. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Plenty of parking and a short easy walk to the lighthouse.

Worth a visit. You can, when volunteers are on duty, take a tour of the lighthouse at $6 for adults. Noticed that old residences have been refurbished and are available for holiday rental. Would be a great location for a holiday.
