Historic lighthouse on the PEI sandy shores, not far from Tignish. The climb to the top of this lighthouse is well worth the effort. Seeing the massive light and massive views are alone worth the short climb effort to the top. Lots of historic information...More

Quaint lighthouse in great location! Awesome views great for taking photos. The beach on the other side of the dunes is beautiful, quiet and seems to go on forever.

My favourite lighthouse of the entire trip! We drove from West to East while in PEI! The exterior is beautiful and navy/black in colour! You're able to climb to the top as well, which is well worn it!

What a beautiful lighthouse. Enormous! It was worth the drive to get here, as the views were lovely. We got our pass checked for going from East to West on the island, and a free book mark.

Hi, I am afraid that I will have to agree with Jonathan. PEI is bigger than you think, and you will need to rent a car to get most places. Charlotte town is great to explore, with lots to see and do. You can check local... More
