“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

There is a wonderful museum manned by knowledgeable volunteer staff and we were allowed a tour up at the very top of the Lighthouse which offered amazing views. It is all free (donation suggested) and a wonderful experience for all ages. Parking is $7. There is a cafe with light lunch foods, desserts, drinks and coffee and it is all cash only. The lighthouse keeper's house has been turned into a touring centre where one can watch various informative videos. Our tour guide was very personable and offered interesting stories about the lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers. I would definitely recommend this site.

“Always beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

If you pick the right morning...no.....every morning is beautiful here. Please don't go though, if you do, then there will be too many people there as well.

Great views, expensive parking at $7 a visit but good for those who don't/are unable to make the walk.
