This is a beautiful Lighthouse and worth the effort to find and photograph. However, most of the time it is not available to the public, and difficult to photograph, much less get close to.

It's a little hard to find but worth a stop. The only problem is you can't get to close road is blocked by a chain fence. You can get a good look to bad you can't get closer

Awesome little stop while visiting Amelia Island. Locked away in a historic neighborhood, it wasn't too hard to find. You need to turn right onto a marked street (starts with an H... can't remember the whole name). Definitely blocked off but we could see the lighthouse through the trees (we went at night).

We tried to get out to the lighthouse, but all the roads were closed. We tried to walk out to it, but would have had to cross a NO TRESPASSING sign. We were disappointed.

Each seaside I visit I enjoy taking photos of the areas lighthouses.. Amelia Island lighthouse is beautiful and well kept. A little tricky to find but worth the effort.

They give a lecture about the lighthouse, but you aren't allowed to see the inside or go up the stairs inside.

Could only see the top from a distance and the access road (we believe) to the lighthouse was gated. I am sure the residents do not want people to be driving in the residential neighborhood to visit the lighthouse ... I am not even sure why it is even there???

A quick little stop. Tucked away in a little neighborhood. Not a ton of time in this but lighthouses are just fun to see. Quick visit only

I love lighthouses but not much to see at this one. A minute visit to take a couple pictures. In a residential neighborhood.
