  • Very peaceful place to be. Can't take cars down the road in the summer so be warned you must walk down in the summer.
  • Private driveway takes to the lighthouse so make sure to read the rules to see if you qualify to drive. Overall, follow the driveway/walkway through the amazing private residencies before the view opens up to the lighthouse. It's about 10 min walk. Lighthouse itself is out of reach since it is sitting on a private property. Nevertheless, the experience and views and breathtaking especially if you go down there to watch a sunset. Not to mention Taylor Swift's house is right there. Her summer house is sitting on a hill where the whole front is covered with rock.
  • Great place to go if you're into scenery and/or fishing. For photographers, this place has amazing sunsets.
  • Really beautiful experience. Very nicely kept. Great views. (Do not go past the gate, even if it is open). The property the lighthouse is on is private.
  • Great place to visit summer or winter love it's neighborhood disguise
