“Nice to see”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

It's tiny inside and I can't get over the fee to go up the stairs. It's a beautiful picture from the outside.

“A must see & do when coming!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

This is somthing that my family has done every year we went to HHI, and it was a blast! We enjoyed seeing each other from the distance. There is even a website to see your friends when they visit. If I were to return, I would visit again.

“Beautiful view!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We have been going to the lighthouse for years. The view up top is breathtaking! Make sure you bring a camera because you can always get awesome pictures, especially at sunset.

“Great Sunset location”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you're in HH you should at least check out the old Lighthouse and the area around it. We happened to be there on a great night for seeing the sunset and a lightning storm in the distance.
There are a lot of stairs to climb and it's a hot climb too so be advised it's a little work to reach the top.

“Waste of time and money”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

It is not a real lighthouse - do not waste your time and money. Go to Tybee, Go to Cape Hatteras. This is a tourist trap. $3.75/person after a mandatory $5 resort fee to get in. and all for what, something someone dreamed up in the early 70's as a way to get money? Don't do it. Just say no. There are too many real light houses out there to spend your time and money on this rip off. what a disappointment. That is a chunk of my day I can't get back.
