We took the drive out to see the lighthouse. Very scenic and we stopped for photos quite a few times. We did not do the lighthouse tour. There are restrooms, cafe and a gift shop there.

The Hook is one of the most visited areas in the south east. I visited it many times of the year, winter, summer in daylight and by night. It’s magical. It’s never the same. The power of the ocean, the elements pounding the coastline and...More

It's a lovely drive with plenty of little bays to explore. There are couple of points of interest, most notedly Hook Lighthouse. Great tour, definitely worth a visit!

On a wild January day, Ring of Hook has to be seen to be believed! The storms lashed the base of the lighthouse, and we rushed indoors where we had a lovely light meal and a tour of this historic site.

If you like wind and waves and like photography, This is the place for you. The hook lighthouse has a restaurant and coffee shop. Cliff walk and blow holes. Check the weather, and wrap up.
