Beautiful and natural. Beach close by to visit as well. The Moss turns like autumn leaves in the fall. Would have loved to see the colours against the lakes.

One of the few places left in it's natural state. Cottages dot the island in this quaint seaside town. The beaches are pristine & not crowded. Spectacular views from the top of the lighthouse. If you are looking for beach glass & rocks, this is...More

We were two adults that visited this site on August 26, 2019. If you come to New Brunswick, then this lighthouse and surroundings are well worth a visit. A lighthouse visit costs $ 6. At the top of the lighthouse there was a guide who...More

We went to visit this site as a couple of families with children 9-12 years old. Adults ranged from 33-60 years old. We live in the east coast already so we did not find this beach to be the most beautiful one we have seen...More

This is an incredibly well-preserved lighthouse (the oldest in N.B.) and yes, there is a charge to climb to the top but c'mon, money has to pay to keep this place going so trust me, $4 Canadian (about $3+ U.S.) is well worth the price...More

Beautiful place! So peaceful. The drive of all Miscou island was easy, beautiful to see the ocean along the way. There is a gift shop at the lighthouse & you can also climb the steps of the lighthouse to the top for a fee.

A very well-preserved and properly maintained historic structure in a superb setting. The charge to climb up the many stairs to the top is a bit steep, but well worth it given that the funds are needed to maintain the structure. We were happy to...More

Nice spot, great little lighthouse you can pay to go to the top of ($6 per adult, less for kids, etc). There are lots of covered shelters with a view of the ocean. The beach isn’t the greatest, but the area around the lighthouse is...More

We visited in mid-June on a weekday. The lighthouse was open for viewing but the gift shop was closed. Staff at the lighthouse were very helpful and the signage around the structure was very informative and told the story of this historic site. There is...More
