Interesting lighthouse. There is a nice beach here, a fishing pier, and good bird watching. Great views on all sides.

“Love Old Lighthouses !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This one is really cool because of WHERE it is. The beaches of Sanibel cannot be beat ! The shelling is amazing ! My husband liked this area because there is shady areas to get out of the sun.

“A must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a great area to see dolphins, kite surfers, shells, birds and just to walk on the beach. The lighthouse is plainer from most, but it is still a great place to visit

“A little disappointed”

I expected to see a different kind of lighthouse but the beach was very interesting as we watched pelicans and other birds feeding.

“Great shells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We found the huge amounts of shells wonderful. The lighthouse is small but fun to see. Great beach with lots of room, white sand, crushed shell ledges,fishing pier, close parking and restrooms and dolphin sightings. It was winding our first day and several kite surfers were out and very talented to watch! Our second day less wind but low tide so tons of shells! It has everything you could look for in a beach!
