Just the short amount of time we spent here was well worth the trip. Lovely site and well maintained. We visited the Base NEX and it far surpassed that of the other base nearby.

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.
