This is rated Trip Advisor number one location - a MUST see. There could have been some information somewhere or online to say that it was currently (and for some obvious time) surrounded by scaffolds and netting. A wasted trip.
We always love to visit this location when we are in the area. Didn’t know the lighthouse was encased in scaffolding. Wasn’t like the normal beauty we are used to seeing. Maybe it will be nicer when they are finished with the remodel or whatever...More

I was there in mid October - there were several people. but admittedly, the winds keep the people 'moving' - as a photographer, I probably spent more time there than your general lighthouse tourist type. The weather here is distinctively different than even 15 minutes further inland. It would be an awesome spot for a quick ceremony & photos!
