The lighthouse is well worth the visit. It is an currently operational light overlooking the gulf. The house and property are a beautiful piece of history.

W stayed here after Christmas before New Years. The room and the staff were great. At this time of year there were very few people around. It was a great place to rest and relax.

You do not need a pass if you go to the correct gate. They will request ID there. That gate also takes you to the lighthouse. You must enter through the West gate off of Blue Angels Pkwy.
