4.4
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Digby
The current Point Prim Lighthouse is the fourth in a line of lighthouses built at Point Prim since 1804. It is located at the mouth of the Digby Gut, which connects the Bay of Fundy with the Annapolis Basin. It is located approximately 8.5km outside Digby.Around the lighthouse is a small public park with trails and information boards about the history of the lighthouse and the geologic area. The park offers views of the Bay of Fundy and the Digby Gut. It is operated by The Friends of Point Prim and they have slowly gained support from local contributors who have donated two picnic tables and a donation box built by Robert Wilson, son of former light keeper Frank Wilson. They have also applied for a grant from Heritage Canada to help with repairs and upkeep of the lighthouse and surrounding parkland. There is also a beautiful view, and interesting rock formations.

    Out of the way place but worth the time to get there. There's a phenomenal view of the Bay of Fundy and there's always a chance to see whales or other of the Fundy inhabitants.  more »

    The woman at the front desk of our hotel suggested we take a ride up to Prim Point Lighthouse. She was right! It is a beautiful view and worth the trip.  more »

    We went out two times once at low tide and once at high tide and you can really see the difference. This place has a nice lookout and walking trails  more »
