  • Beautiful twin lighthouses with wonderful views (on a clear day you can see NYC). The lighthouses themselves are absolutely delightfully made from stone.  more »

  • Essential stop for anyone visiting Monmouth County for the first time. The sweeping views of Sandy Hook Bay, lower NY harbor and the ocean are fantastic. The area is well maintained and the staff is friendly. Sadly, the museum area no longer properly reflects the history of this great building and the historically significant activities that occurred here in the past .
  • This place is wonderful it's a great place for a picnic lunch or just to hike or just to hang out and relax and enjoy nature. The view is incredible. You can also hike to the top of both lighthouses. Great place to bring a date to
  • The road to get to the lighthouse is quite steep and very narrow which opens up to a relatively large parking lot. Nice views from the top of the lighthouse. My understanding is that only one of the two towers is open at a time. At the base between the two towers is a small gift shop and a museum section. On my particular visit it had a display of various historical American flags.
  • It's a cool place. Cool building. Very good views from the top of the Lighthouse.
  • Very nice and clean. Kids loved it. Museum was very nice and good artifacts.
