We went for a nice hike on the trail, which is well kept, quiet and interested. The lighthouse is not kept very well, it needs some repairs, and a lot of paint. I don't think Parks Canada puts a lot of effort and money in...More

Second only to the lighthouse in Peggy's Cove, this lighthouse is iconic. A definite must-see when you're in Nova Scotia. Take a walk down the trail and you'll enjoy the scenic view of the Atlantic Ocean, the sound of waves rushing in and beating against...More

The address is 555 Havenside Rd. A quick Google map for "Louisbourg Lighthouse,NS" will get you there.
