This lighthouse can only be accessed at low-tide. You will need to check the tide schedule to know when you can visit, but if you have the chance it provided a unique window to the past and beautiful view.

This is a wonderful lighthouse, which you can walk across to during low tide. And there are great views of the Pacific Ocean from everywhere! It was built in 1856.

Battery Point is one of my favourite lighthouses... and since I live on the Oregon coast, I'm around a lot of lighthouses! This one is unique since you have to wait for low tide to cross the causeway to get there. They do give tours...More

The best way to get to Battery Point Lighthouse is during low tide. If you were looking to go to tour the Lighthouse, it would be during the summer time. You could call and ask the Museum on H street. To get more information.
