This is the first lighthouse you see when coming into the harbor and it's easy to ride a bicycle over to. You can also walk to it from the harbor area but it would be a decent walk because you have to go up and out of the harbor and around. Since it is highly visible there are often people there. I managed to find it pretty empty later in the day because a rain shower had come though. If you rent a bike for the day I recommend getting an E-bike, it makes getting around the island so much easier and there are alot of bike paths. There is a place to lock your bike up too near this lighthouse.

Would not say this is a “don’t miss,” but if you have the time, it’s a nice photo op! Be aware of the shelly beach you will need to walk on to get to the lighthouse itself, though, it was painful without shoes!

You can’t miss this iconic sight because you can almost touch it on the ferry. I saw it in 2007 and it’s looking tired now hopefully they have some plans. Walking the area is very easy and the beach is perfect as well.

Lovely little lighthouse. It has been through many challenges during its life-But still stands strong now! We packed an evening dinner watching the boats on the harbor near the Lighthouse. It was wonderful and one of the highlights of our trip. We watch the sunset and took great pictures. This was a perfect alternative as many restaurants were completely booked for dining in, but were available for takeout. No crowds-no waiting—quiet and beautiful. Just bring a blanket or some chairs!
