Took photos from a distance because we did not feel it was worth the walk in the rain. Did not see it at night so we really cannot say too much other than it looks better than most standard lighthouses.

Lower Bedeque. Nice drive and pretty spot for picking up seashells and climbing lighthouse. Take mosquito spray. Village store in Bedeque (turnoff to Lower Bedeque) has great ice cream.

Very beautiful view - especially at sunset. If you have dinner at the restaurant right on the boardwalk, and sit on the patio, you can enjoy the view as you eat.

At low tide you can walk out to the light house, but you have to be quick about it. There is no beach to walk on at high tide. THe lighthouse is still operational (although declared surplus). There is no access to the light house....More
