Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse

Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

I drove out here each night while staying in Rocky Harbour to watch the sunset. The lighthouse is situated on the edge of a steep cliff which affords great panoramic views of Rocky Harbour and several nearby mountains including Gros Morne. The lighthouse itself is quite attractive and clearly well cared for. It has a large living area for the keeper connected to the light tower through a narrow attachment built along the rocks. There are also trails around it allowing you to explore the cliff face close-up.

This lighthouse is very beautiful on the outside but unfortunately when we were there they were working on this inside so we could not go in . There was however a tent set up outside with a very nice young man telling us all about the history of it .

Went late in the day for sunset and was not disappointed. Site was under renovation when we were there but definitely recommend for people to see. Be careful on trails as lots of roots. Did not make it to tidal pools but would definitely recommend

At first thought this was an inactive lighthouse, but when the sun went down and the light came on, it was great to see. A nice lighthouse to visit. Well worth my time.

It was an average site. There were a couple of short trails around the lighthouse. This would be a good starter trail for beginners.
