This is def a cool place to go with your partner or your family. It's awesome that they allow you to go all the way to the top of the lighthouse climbing 182 steps. I don't think it's a good idea for small kids but...More

I went there with my family. It’s a good place for children. I really like the lighthouse because of the nice scenery. After that I went to the beach. There are the high tides. Be careful for that and prepare the extra clothes.

It was excellent sunny early Fall day. Not long walk from the parking to the Lighthouse area via wild nature... Lighthouse is in very good condition. Quite hard to get to the top but it's worthwhile! Museum's exhibition was good - I knew a lot...More

The entire family enjoyed this experience. The walk to the lighthouse was peaceful and the scenery was just beautiful. $10 to park, Easy, convenient parking. The volunteers were patient with the tons of questions my kids asked, and very informative. A great experience all around

We went to the beach to check out the possible storm surge. There were some big waves rolling in. After a walk along the beach, we went to tour the lighthouse. It is a charming, informative museum with a lovely view....except they were doing repairs...More

After a walk on the boardwalk, we made it to the lighthouse on Wednesday around 430. We had perfect timing. Only a few other people were climbing ahead of us. $8 charge, but worth the experience and the views. Very friendly staff member answered all...More

Was not overly strenuous to walk to the lighthouse because of the boardwalk - we saw deer and birds. Make sure you have a hat and sunscreen! The climb up was manageable (we saw young and old on the way up and down) and the...More

Great walk on the broad walk from the vast carpark to the lighthouse on a hot August morning. No deer but some bird life about. We didn't go up the lighthouse but it was impressive from ground level. The walk back along the beach was...More

Light house was well preserved, neat and clean. You have to park your car at field 5 ($10) and follow the trail (1 mile long) to the light house. The trail is pretty ordinary, long walk and nothing special but you don't have a choice....More

Yes, even if they closed the lighthouse accessible, you still can walk around out there. It's a nice peaceful place to visit, just leave before the sky goes dark, It might be dangerous that you can't see the road back.
