Beautiful spot! We visited on a rare sunny and calm day at low tide, so we were able to walk out to the lighthouse and poke around. They have beautiful gardens surrounding a very well kept group of buildings. It's a manned light station, but...More

The lighthouse looks quite spectacular sitting up on its small island. The pink flowers on side of walkways was amazing. When you see how rocky the Coast line here is you appreciate why the lighthouse is there . With it being a working lighthouse you...More

This lighthouse is reached only at low tide. The walk is over rocks that may be difficult for some people, but it's worth the walk if you can make it! Great views of the coast with all its rocky outcroppings.

We walked down the beach to get to the lighthouse but could not cross to the lighthouse because of the tide. We still enjoyed the walk and view!

Absolutely beautiful spot. We couldn’t get over to the island because of the tide. It was a great place to look for sand dollars!

I love lighthouses and this one did not disappoint me. The people who led the tour were very informative and we enjoyed there details of the history. I have already told my family this needs to be a visit again at another time.

The best way to get to Battery Point Lighthouse is during low tide. If you were looking to go to tour the Lighthouse, it would be during the summer time. You could call and ask the Museum on H street. To get more information.
