Whether you drive, rent a moped or ride a bike North up Corn Neck Road, you won't be disappointed by either the trip or the destination. Park in the lot and set off to see the lighthouse then walk out to Sandy Point to see...More

Just a stunningly beautiful lighthouse. Worth every penny of the $3. The two docents are excellent and knowledgeable, answered all questions asked. The half mile walk to get there was a nice walk along the beach as well. Don't miss this Landmark!
