The view of combination of red cliffs and lighthouse is great. We are glad that we stopped by at the last day of being in PEI just before we exited from confederation bridge. It is worth to visit it.

We stopped to Seacow Head Lighthouse with our puppy, Freya. We walked along the red cliffs in both directions and enjoyed the stunning views. You even get a great view of the Confederation Bridge. There were a bunch of local teenagers swimming here while we visited. We did not try it out but it looked fun!

This is a great place to go for a view of the bridge and the pei coast line. A great place to watch a sunset on a clear night. So beautiful.

I come back time and time again and the beauty takes my breath away each and every time! Sunrise, sunset, low tide and high tide this is the spot to be! Bring your bathing suits and water shoes and jump into the caves below. Use extreme caution while sightseeing!

The drive to this lighthouse isn't that far from the Confederation Bridge. The drive is really scenic and has little to no traffic. The lighthouse is really old and beautiful. You have a great view of the Confederation Bridge and the Northumberland Strait from here. The red earth cliffs are just gorgeous. This lighthouse is worth a visit.

This lighthouse is perched high above the Northumberland Strait with very picturesque red sandstone cliffs below. It offers great views of the Strait and the Confederation Bridge for those that love such photos. It is well worth stopping at if you are exploring the southern coast of PEI anyway and it is quite easy to find. It is, overall, a... More

This light house is kinda out of the way but has great views and is a good place to spread a blanket and have a picnic lunch. Great coastal cliff views.

We went to see Gus's lighthouse as were were fans of Road to Avonlea! It was a little difficult to find but it was go some place with no tourists. It was worth the drive out there. You can also get a view of the confederation bridge off in the distance. When we arrived there were many locals who were... More
