We visited the beach at Little Sable Point Lighthouse multiple times during our long weekend in Mears. The beach was beautiful and clean and the view from the top of the Lighthouse was breathtaking!

An easy walk from parking, and a beautiful setting with the lighthouse and the lake, with a gentle sloping beach - perfect for a family picnic at sunset, a walk on the beach with someone special or just to sit and read a book and listen to the waves.

The beach was nice and clean.Enjoyed a swim in the lake and fun in the sand.I was disappointed on our way out when I looked into visiting the Lighthouse,the cost is a little too much.I couldn't justify spending $22 for me and 4 kids to climb it for 5 minutes.

I have a huge fear of heights. I decided that I would try this though as my family has done it before. I got all the way to the first hatch and just could not go forth. It had breathtaking views though from the windows along the way. They keep a certain number for safety going up and down the... More
