The road says private but you can drive it to go to the lighthouse. You pass some beautiful homes and the yacht club as well as a private beach. It is $10 to park at the lighthouse, and it's on the honor system. However, there...More

The location is open, however you can't get to the Lighthouse... unless there's a Tour being conducted. we traveled Sept 2017. it it completely fenced off. Don't be discouraged by the private drive-ways to private Housing Communities, once past you will arrive at your destination.
