“Great Beach.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Lighthouse a little disappointing. Beach great. Adjacent parking. Nearby restroom facilities. Would have liked some history on the lighthouse.

“Go for the beach, not the Lighthouse”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I always like to visit lighthouses, there is always something mystical about them-not this one though. I would pass on this stop, except we really enjoyed the beaches in the area. At least the lighthouse serves as a guide to some nice beaches!

“Okay lighthouse”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

There is nothing special about this lighthouse. What is great is the lighthouse beach, which is known for shelling.

“No big deal...”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Just nothing to write home about. Hard to get to & then not worth it when you do. Not even a pretty lighthouse!

“Nice place”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Great place to watch sunrise, shelling, beach combing, just walking around. Less pompous than farther up the beach
