In any direction, it’s like a view of heaven (or maybe it is heaven). While the lighthouse and grounds are interesting, the main reason to come here is that the trails around the site are breathtakingly beautiful, and this site is also the northern terminus...More

Amazing views and great tour of the lighthouse. However there are lots of stairs and some rough terrain for elderly or disabled people.

Very knowledgable and friendly staff provide context and information on the history of the lighthouse and lighthouses in general. We were treated with a Minke whale swimming around just below the lighthouse. Well worth the drive.
