“very nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

The day we were there the light house was not open for viewing. The house looks like it is well kept. At the parking area is a breakwater and entrance from the harbor to the ocean., There were several families of seals playing in the surf. Worth a visit

“Good lighthouse, better beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Lighthouse visits are definitely a must on the Cape, but this lighthouse has a great beach and there were pods of seals about 10 feet from the shore.

I'm a lighthouse fanatic and this one was really lovely, and the beach (no lifeguard so be careful) was gorgeous.

“Saw many seals at the beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Did not go in lighthouse, line was ling and I can't imagine the inside of the lighthouse would have been too comfortabke however, I walk along the beach and saw quite a few seals some came pretty close to the shore. Very cool to see them in their own environment. Parking is difficult as toy can only be parked for 1 hour, and they are very strict. Beautiful views.!

“Nice lighthouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

The day we went parking was easy to come by (4 th Aug) parking limited to 30 mins but if just going to look at the light,take a snap and move on ample time. Wish we had gone on a day when the light was open as not much to see otherwise.
