See it from the beach.

As stated by another reviewer this lighthouse is on private property. However, you can view it from the beach by the jetty. It is well maintained.

OK, it's easy to see from the the outside. But it is modern with no historic relevance. Go and see one of the many real historic lighthouses in Oregon, or from Brookings just go south to Crescent City for a real one nearby.

If you went it would really be intruding. Hey it's at the end of the very narrow Sandy dead end. It would be rude and also you would be seriously tresspassing. I wish trip advisor would take this down as one of Brookings"things to do."

From the jetty, one can now see two homes with lighthouses in Brookings. The original one is the larger of the two, and to the left of the newer one.

This lighthouse surprised me as to it's location. It's worth the trip to see it and not at all hard to find. Easy to get pics. Not a Lighthouse you can visit but you can take all the pics you want from different angles. I would upload some but not sending this from my laptop.

Its very easy to get a look at the "Lighthouse right from the Habor parking lot. Pretty cool looking. Would be nice to be able to catch the inside sometime at one of the events.

We have been taking pictures of all the lighthouses along the Oregon Coast and have to say, Pelican Bay is truly unique. It is also a private home, like Cleft in the Rock near Yachats, and not open to the public most of the time. The building sits on a high bluff, overlooking Boat Basin Drive in Harbor (as in... More
