The Currituck Beach Lighthouse is one of the most beautiful we have ever climbed. I definitely recommend climbing the lighthouse. The views are amazing at the top, but it's also enjoyable seeing the views as you climb the gorgeous metal stairs.

Nice quiet area. We were going to go up the the lighthouse ($10) but there was a line of kids and it was cold out so we didn't bother.

In total about 10-20 minutes. It takes about 10 minutes to climb and the view from the top takes about 10 minutes depending upon how long you want to stay. It’s a self-guided tour. I would say 30 minutes maximum.

Adults cost $10, however if you just want to go inside and take a photo looking up at the spiral stairway there is no cost.
