Really nice location and this lighthouse is super photogenic. Went by here on a drive and were happy to have stopped, There are some great views from here...only watch out for wind...it gets pretty windy here so be prepared.

Beautiful setting made for some great pictures framed by a beautiful blue sky. The view from here is awesome and you can watch as the ferry sails by. Easy to get to and not far from other attractions like The Knob.

Great place to stop and see the ferry and pleasure boat traffic in and out the vineyard and the beautiful coastline. On a sunny day the water is so clear and green the wind is often invigorating.

Your trip is not complete without a stop or drive by the lighthouse. It’s a perfect spot for a family photo and a view of the beach nearby.

Actually you can go in, but only on Tuesdays and Thursdays when they offer tours, between 10 and 12.
