Once you find this spot it is a terrific place to walk and sit on the rocks, experience the sea and harbor.

“Beautiful”

We drove out and it was a great view. We actually walked al the way out to the end of the break water. It was a wonderful adventure.

“Beautiful Spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Although we couldn't get to the lighthouse because it is a private residence, the walk around the lighthouse and onto the Dog Bar Breakwater was amazing! It is really neat to go out that far into the water and get a look at the scenery. The drive to the lighthouse was also stunning and I am glad that we read the reviews from others that said you can ignore the "Private Drive" signs posted. Make sure you have good comfortable non slip shoes if you plan on walking on the breakwater!

“Never saw it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Because of the unfriendly people living close to the lighthouse we were put off going to the end of the road. The notices are a deterrent but we learnt afterwards that one can ignore them. We were only in the area for a short period and so missed the opportunity to see this sight. A very disappointing experience of the USA.

“Not easily accessible but fun to walk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

You have to wear good shoes to walk across tons of rocks on the beach near the Eastern Point, where the Dog Bar is located. Walking on it will give you great views of the Eastern Point Lighthouse, the nearby yacht club and boats, and you will also get to see the gorgeous homes on the Eastern Point as to make your way to the Dog Bar.
