  • Great tour up 95 stair steps to the ladder on top. Well worth the time for a short tour. Great tour guide, nice day, well maintained.
  • I wasn't there but looks like it's a pretty heavy house, don't know why everyone thinks it's light. No man can lift this
  • The light house is beautiful. The open hours are not convenient for the casual traveler.
  • Just a beautiful place! Would never go to any other beach other than this one. Great lighthouse,helpful and friendly park rangers. Happy to support the park.
  • Cool lighthouse and I had a private tour all to myself as nobody else showed up for the tour. The park ranger was very helpful and fun to talk to.
