This was a great stop. The lighthouse is very cool and the walking paths were fun. Lots of rocky areas and little tidal pools. There's a little Tea Room and Museum by the lighthouse that is worth checking out (The Mug Up Tea Room). The people were so friendly and helpful. Everyone was glad to answer questions and proud to give information on the area!

The views from the lighthouse hill and great. The lighthouse and setting are a photo op for sure. The two student hosts were most helpful and amusing guys. We enjoyed speaking with them and learned a lot about Yarmouth and the surrounding area.

A different style of lighthouse located on the rocks. You can spend hours climbing on the rocks and walking on the beach located next to the lighthouse.

Great place for a picnic or just to smell the ocean air. Beautiful grounds and organized activities during the summer months.
