  • The vivid scenery blends beautifully with the ocean. The rocks are great for kids to explore and there seems to be an endless supply of picture spots, as well as lobster. I easily spent an hour exploring the rocks. This was a very enjoyable visit and I would highly recommend it.
  • Gorgeous light house. Definitely a must see for tourists and locals. The small town and surroundings is full of charm. You'll find yourself wanting to take pictures of everything!

  • At first I was dismayed by all of the tourists here , however I quickly understood why there was so many people. The place is beautiful this scenery is top notch, and there are some great little shops in town. BE CAREFUL WALKING ON THE ROCKS!
  • It's a an amazing and unique landscape. Not enough parking!
