  • Only reachable when the tide it out. It’s worth walking to this lighthouse to enjoy the view this area has to offer.  more »
  • Elegant lighthouse with an incredible view. People say that its also possible see whales and dolphins. To get there its necessary to walk, but totally worth it. Good for picnic and sunsets.  more »
  • Check the tides are safe so that you don't get stranded by a rising tide. There are no facilities on the island in spite of what peanuts have posted about the Inner Light tea room. They have posted to...  more »

  • Beautiful lighthouse and look out. Just prepare for a trek and pay attention to tide times to cross the spit.
  • awesome place. tricky to get to but that's part of the appeal, usually not many people around. u can walk across the spit at low tide but need to be very careful. u can easily get to the spit on the south side by kayak from fingle bay, or easiest way is by boat from port stephens. it's not far and u can tuck in and anchor on the north side of the spit. the anchorage is fine in a south easter and ok on a calm nor'easter. it's pretty shallow but good sand bottom so easy to swim to shore. it's about 20 min walk to the lighthouse, bare feet is ok if u used to it. great spot for photos at the lighthouse, u could easily spend an hour there, looking at the old lighthouse keepers ruins, the lighthouse itself or the beautiful coastline. be a great spot to watch the whales in whale season too. i've been there many times it's a great place to take friends or visitors, and we normally stop for a charcoal cookup on the beach. well worth a visit :)
  • Great walk and picturesque views!
  • Historic lighthouse accessable by boat or a walk from fingal spit at low tide. Fingal spit can be very dangerous so make sure you check tides, swell ect.
  • Such beautiful place:)
