I love lighthouses!! This was a real treat to climb and walk around the top, what a sight to see!! And right up the road is a little beach called Diamond Beach, with little shops and a place to eat right on the beach!

Liked the ambience of this state park, especially the beach which is very clean and unspoilt. We were able to spot quite a few dolphins from the shore. Kids really loved it.
