The lighthouse is picturesque but it costs $11 per person to enter onto the grounds. Not worth the costs, even if climbing the few steps to the top. You get the same views from the patio by the gift shop. And go on a weekday...More

Beautiful. Sunset is amazing. Very cold in December so bundle up. Bring a thermos with hot cocoa and sit on the benches and watch the boats go by.

We went here in June and the weather was perfect. I have some tremendous photos of the lighthouse and the ocean.

As a Lighthouse junkie this isn't the tallest lighthouse to climb, but the views are some of the best. About $11 to climb, but this includes the visit to the museam. Great beach and trail walks. Overall a must if you're in the area.

With the cooler October weather we were in for a treat. Make sure to wear your comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk some trails and climb to the top of the lighthouse. The views are excellent and breathtaking
