I love the views from lighthouses and this did not disappoint. The cost was $2 to go up (or free with a SC park pass). They did have a limited number of people who could be in there at one time so you may want to go earlier in the day. There is also a height limit so if you have young ones they may not be able to enter.

We enjoying visiting different lighthouses and seeing them was the reason for this trip. Entrance fee was $16 for the two of us (SC seniors get a reduced fee). The asphalt road in and out were in need of repair (and some repairs were in progress) with damage seemingly caused by tree roots raising the pavement surface. The lighthouse was a beauty with the grounds and buildings within the fenced enclosure being well kept. With mask in place, one may visit the ground floor of the lighthouse. To go up the 392 step stairway one must be on the guided tour that has to be scheduled in advance. A gift & snack shop is on site, as well as restrooms. The beach may also be accessed from this area.

Being 51 years old and never been inside a lighthouse and being able to climb to the top and experience the views and feel the beach air with My Princess! To see the history on cards on every landing!

My daughter and I visited in August 2020 and really enjoyed it. They're requiring that you call and make a reservation for when to visit, to limit the number of visitors at once. They're also asking that visitors wear masks. It's a decent walk up, but such a beautiful and historic light house. And the view is awesome. Plus the island drive is awesome. There's also a beach within walking distance. Go!

We climbed the lighthouse during our recent visit to Beaufort / Hunting Island. They are limiting the # of people in the lighthouse to 6 at a time so definitely call early to book a time. It is worth the view.
