The view of the ocean from the parking lot is beautiful. There are several overlooks that allow you to get right to the edges of the bluff. Use caution! Don't be looking for a very large, white lighthouse that is several hundred ft tall. It's very small but serves its purpose.

Beautiful place to see the bluff, fantastic views. Long drive but worth it, can see the bat caves along the way.

Nothing spectacular about the lighthouse..........but the view from here is awesome. Wear comfortable flats as the rocks along the trail are jagged.

Compared to lighthouses say on the east coast of the U.S this is small. Is it even a real one?? The walk was nice. You can see the brown boobies nesting on cliffs. Nice walk but wear good shoes and take water.

The hype is not in the lighthouse at all, in fact, it's really a light stand. The real excitement is in the fantastic view that will take your breath away... Get your cameras ready and hold on tight because it's a long ways down...

The lighthouse itself is nothing to see, but follow the marked path and ease up to the edge of the bluff for a great view at 140 ft. up.

No facilities, but no one else there and amazing bluff and untouched land views. Saw The Boobie Bird babies on nature walk...maybe adults and kids of mature age only as "all natural" edge of bluff's edge! Can see for miles...lots of subtle nature.

The lighthouse is unremarkable, but it is something to do while here. BUT! Take your camera and walk out the trail to view the Brown Boobie birds. They are pretty neat to see.

There is so much to see at the Lighthouse. It is a fun drive just to get there. Once you are there the lighthouses are uneventful, but a lovely walk along the cliffs of the South end of the island. Lots of birds and reptiles and great ocean views.

The lighthouse is right on the tip of the Bluff and at the end which is 150' out of the water. To walk out to the edge and look down at the water splashing onto the rocks below is absolutely gorgeous and out of this world. Just be careful walking out to the edge.
