“Cool Lighthouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

The lighthouse was cool and there are a few little shops around the immediate area but that's about it. The restaurant is suppose to be very good but it was closed when we were there.

“Ok for a fake lighthouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

They charge five bucks to climb to the top of this "lighthouse" and that is after they charge five bucks to even drive into sea pines. Pretty views from the top but nothing that you can't see from the adjoining restaurant, The quarterdeck.

“Not worth the trip”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

The lighthouse is located in a subdivision. The fee is $5, parking is beyond scarce. Save yourself the trip and head towards Tybee Island and see a real lighthouse.

“really beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

114 steps to the top. A gift shop at the top also. Beautiful view of the surrounding area. A small fee was charged, but it was nominal.There were places to rest along the way if the climbing got to be a little too much.
