It was closed but it has a beautiful view and a place for a picnic. There are several trails to walk. It's a worthwhile, relaxing stop.

Cute lighthouse, pretty view. I wouldn't go to Bell Island just to see the lighthouse, but worth a stop if you are there already.

This is just a short detour if you visited the Mine #2, and it has some nice views. There is parking, and you can just walk around a bit, take a few pictures, then be on your way again!

The shoreline offers some very picturesque shots but the lighthouse itself is nothing special by itself. As far as I know there are no tours through it so it is just a working lighthouse standing on the edge of the cliff.

The lighthouse is still operational so closed to the public. The view is beautiful and it is a fantastic place for pictures.

There was not much to see or do at this lighthouse as most was locked up or blocked off. There is a restaurant in the lighthouse back yard, but we did not attend it.

hi jennifer, i believe the tour goes all year round. As long as the ferry can cross over to Bell Island. Hope this helps. You can always check out Bell Island on their facebook page 😊
