We were just trying to reach the end and turn around, then a lighthouse appeared. What a pleasant surprise. Very well maintained and the staff was great

We simply wanted to drive to the end of the Caraquet Penisula and see what was there. We were plesantly surprised and enjoyed our visit to the lighthouse and the beach. It was very windy during our visit but that is probably fairly typical.

We visit Miscou Island every year around this time. This Saturday was a coolish September day, but perfect for Miscou. We had our 5 year old grand daughter with us for the road trip and she really enjoyed the boardwalks with the birdwatch areas, the sandy beaches and seeing the large windmill farm, but the highlight of the tour for her was the Miscou Island Lighthouse. Built in 1856, it is about 80" tall. We were greeted by a staff of 3 ladies who were so friendly. There is a charge of $5 for adults and $3 for children. There is a small stage and chairs which they use to give presentations during the busy season, spotless washrooms, and an ice cream stand next door (closed when we were there). The tour consists of climbing several flights of stairs. At each landing, there is an exhibit outlining the history of the area and the details of the lighthouse. I'm not sure how the tour guide beat us to the top, but she was there and smiling. Grand daughter was thrilled to be able to climb through a small access door and do a couple of walks around the top of the tower. The view is breathtaking, even on a slightly overcast day. I can only imagine how great it would be on a sunny, clear one .. we could see the outline of the Gaspe coast. Allow time to walk on the beautiful sandy beaches.
