    After the obligatory stop at the restaurant not far away, these imposing cliffs deserve absolutely a stop while the wind ruffles my hair and the gaze is lost in the infinite

    We really enjoyed the Cape d'Or Lighthouse. It is not very touristy (we were the only tourists there plus 3 women doing some sort of geologic study or something). The drive out to the lighthouse is a ...  more »

    This was our first stop during a recent trip to Nova Scotia and it certainly set the bar high for the rest of the trip! The cliffs, surf, small lighthouse buildings are all beautiful...the setting is ...  more »

    Amazing view of the lighthouse, bay of Fundy and rock formations. It is worth climbing back up to the parking lot. We stayed there overnight so I got to see the sunset and sunrise and it is just so amazing. The rooms are clean and the food at the light keeper's restaurant was the best! They are all very accommodating. We can not complain 😀 you can bring your car down if you stay overnight.

    It's a long, windy and sometimes rough path towards the Cape d'Or Lighthouse but the trip is well worth it. You end up at a quiet lighthouse with spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy and the unique landscape. The weather was nice but windy when we arrived and there were very few other tourists. You are able to explore fairly freely here so long as you are careful.

    Wonderful. Lovely. Beautiful. A unique place to stay. And the dinner & breakfast prepared just for us were exquisite. Definitely a favorite of our road trip. PS: do not drive down the last 100 meters unless you have 4wd.

    I 'Grew up' here over many years, due to my Father's Brother-In-Law (My Uncle, Phil Morris) was one of the Lighthouse Keepers here for many years. The views, the 'pulse' of the ocean, are always invigorating, to say the least. Always check ahead to see when the Cafe is open, as that is a newfound treat as well. Having many a 4x4 myself over the years, and my family before that, traversing the steep hill up and down was never an issue; but if you have never attempted it before, DON'T! LOL! Better err on the side of caution, especially if you are not a trained & experienced 4x4 steep hill climbing driver.

    Talk about unique! You drive on unpaved roads, walk down a steep lane to the lighthouse and restaurant and sit and watch the tides. We had great food, friendly service and sat and played cards for a couple of hours. It was worth every bit of effort to get there. This was our favorite part of the area!
