“A nice little detour”

Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse
Ranked #11 of 39 things to do in Manteo
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I walked by the lighthouse from across the harbor while taking a Ghost Tour. It was evening and luckily I was able to see the lighthouse at work. Provided a beautiful display and, while it isn't tall and purely cylindrical like the typical lighthouse, it was still a sight too see. Something to look out for if you're in the area.

We stopped in Manteo to see the lighthouse. Very impressed by the town, shops, eateries, boats , etc. Worth a trip to get away from tourists and big box "wings" shopping stores. Spend an afternoon on Roanoake Island... Plenty to do.

Beautiful area of Manteo, free visit, no climbing necessary, beautiful view. This area of Manteo had the lighthouse and quaint shops, very cute town to walk around in, full moon brewery has some nachos that would easily fill up 4 people. Nice craft pavilion area. Pirate face painting and other items. Sit by the water and take in the scenery. No charge to get inside the lighthouse.

This is a replica of the original, but it is a nice addition to Manteo's waterfront. We watched a wedding ceremony taking place on the front steps...windy but memorable. Very pretty at night!

Since we are trying to visit all of the NC lighthouses, we made a special trip to see this one especilly because it is a bit different. This is a cottage lighthouse and very small. We visited on a Saturday the last weekend in April. The lighthouse is closed on weekends! Not sure if it is closed on weekends all year so check before you go. We did find a gem of a small town in Manteo and some quaint shops and a brewery so all was not lost. zThe town is worth a day visit.
