Nestled within the gated Leamington community of Palmetto Dunes on the Arthur Hills golf course. Skip this landmark unless you are a die hard lighthouse fan. It was used as a triangulation point for vessels headed into the Savannah River, not a warning beacon for...More

It was a rainy day so we decided to check out this lighthouse. A guard gives you a pass because it is located in the middle of a golf course, inside a gated community. There is NO parking except on the lawn, the door was...More

Unless you are a lighthouse enthusiast, I'd pass. You have to go through a gated community. Once you get to the South gate, they'll give you a pass. You then drive to Leamington gated community on Queen Mary, dial 000 and they'll let you in....More

This is worth 4.25 each as there is nice display of old pictures and history on the staircase. The view at the top is very nice and it is great to see above the dense trees that cover the island.

It was quite the adventure to get to, since it is in a gated community. We were kinda given the run around, but after 1/2 a day and a lot of bike riding, we finally got there. Seemed the only other lighthouse was in Sea...More
