There's a reason this lighthouse is one of Microsoft's most beautiful background pictures for Windows!! Take extra time to climb up, have a picnic and rock hop when the tide's out! SPECTACULAR VIEWS!!

Revisit with family. Small funky museum filled with all sorts of old photos, ship implements, shells. Good history of lighthouse. Walk up to light - beautiful views of sea. Worth the visit.
