Very impressive place. Amazing view. Beautiful red cliffs. Lighthouse Not accessible but still worth seeing. Place wasn't hard to find like some people were saying.

A bit hard to find. Going west, it is the first dirt road on your right past the Wild Goose Lodge. Drive slowly and stay away from the cliffs!

Well off the beaten path, this hidden gem on PEI is well worth your time. A classic old lighthouse, but the views don't stop there...Walk (carefully) along the fence line for some incredible vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, and the deep red cliffs abutting it....More
