  • This place is great at night when the lights are on. Take the tour if you have time, it's worth it! The coast guard museum is fascinating as well!
  • Cool place to go and watch the sunrise early in the morning or the sunset in the evening, because you can see the ocean really good. Plus you can take a tour of the lighthouse in front of the coast guard's houses
  • Visited recently as we were passing by and were glad we stopped. Weren't able to go inside the lighthouse but it had a nice viewing area and a museum that we didn't have time to check out.
  • Love to go there to see the lighthouse with it's unique red lamp. The view overlooking the dunes is quite interesting. It's so relaxing to watch the ocean coming in.
  • Great view! Did NOT do the lighthouse tour, but should have. Info at the lookout was great. Was a neat little find.
