  • My first lighthouse review. Nice bike ride on paved path. Beautiful views of Chincoteacue National Park. Ride you bike as they charge $10 per car if you decide to drive.  more »
  • A towering lighthouse that stood the test of time! Build in the 1800s and with proper care few hundred later, its still a beacon! On the base, granite stones if am bot mistaken, are noticeable. Bricks made most of it the tower. It was Martin Luther King when i visited and wasn’t able to ask anyone of the lighthouse was open for visitors to climb up.
  • Great view of ponies and the area from the top! You walk around the entire outside and can stop and take pics. Free! Donations appreciated.
  • Nice views at the top. Free admission (since you're charged to get into the park).
  • Not a bad walk up to top. Great view. Highly recommend a visit if you are in Chincoteague.
  • A nice place to see during your visit to the island.
