This is an interesting and historical lighthouse worth a visit. The tour is a bit tedious (I’m pretty sure the man talking too long at the beginning was stoned), but it’s still worth the time. It’s a tricky climb up and down at the very...More

I always love going to this lighthouse, it is my favorite one. When the gift shop is open you can talk with the friendly staff and buy a ticket to go into the lighthouse. The view of the ocean and sky at sunset is like...More

This was a great find - we never visited before, and I am glad we did. I love to find lighthouses on the way - they are so beautiful and have such great history. Easy walk from the car and there is a little spot...More

This was a real gem. We stopped here on a whim and I'm so glad we did! It is a beautiful little lighthouse. We decided to do the tour...a reasonable $6 charge and we were happy we did. The guides were so knowledgeable and enjoyable....More

We made a pit stop here to see the light house and read about its history. It was interesting that the lighthouse was moved from its original location to where it is now because of the erosion of the cliff. Its hard to imagine them...More

I love accessibility of this Lighthouse! You can visit every day, rain or snow, and it is just great! For a small fee you can touch the very history! A lot of other lighthouses are making it hard to come inside or even come close...More

A wonderful visit to this lighthouse. Learned much about its history and how it was moved to keep it from falling into the ocean. An informative and picturesque trip good for the entire family
