  • This place is worth the stop. The lighthouse includes a lovely boardwalk with a gorgeous view of the ocean and a lovely breeze. There is also kiosks selling drinks, etc.

  • This is a great stop whether for a few minutes or much longer. Scenic with fantastic views. Nice grounds and tiki bar offers great drinks and food. A highlight of the area.

  • Be prepared, it's HOT!!! There's minimal shade, the bathrooms have no ventilation, the toilet is leaking water on the floor, and there was no toilet paper nor paper towels. There are however beautiful views. So... Go at your own risk.
  • I'm happy to say that the lighthouse is fixed from what it looked like in previous years. Truly a tourist attraction. It is very lovely, makes you want to sit and stay there for a long while.
