I know Hatteras and Bodie are famous, but this was actually my favorite lighthouse...It’s more natural looking with all the bricks that went into the making of this beauty...The grounds are so clean and well cared for, a really cool little shop with everything Currituck...More
Love lighthouses and this one expands the love ! See ocean and sound views. And it is made of bricks
Last time I went up was probably 20 years ago and there were wild horses in pasture at the bottom
A real treat!

They also have a very good gift shop for...More

The grounds here are shaded and gorgeous. And this lighthouse is unique in that it retains it's original brick exterior (vs. white outer plaster like the others). It's near the Whalehouse as well, and I would recommend hitting both if you're up that way --...More
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.
