This is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the ocean view. Sometimes there are surfers to entertain you.

I gave it this rating because you can't even get near the lighthouse, it was all behind a wire fenced in area!

Beautiful location with great views! Not for those who want a lighthouse tour but great place to bring your clamcakes or doughboys and watch the waves. Usually no big crowds or kids running around just scenic and relaxing!
