A wonderful little lighthouse located at Lion's Head on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario. It's the gateway to a municipal harbour, one of the deepest on Gerogian Bay. A peaceful place to relax in the summer and take in the crystal clear waters and magnificent cliffs just opposite the lighthouse. Winter is just as wonderful as the ice builds up on it and the stormy waves crash over the jetty. Well worth a stop in Lion's Head to see it.

Lion's Head is a lovely little village with breathtaking scenery. The lighthouse is very well kept and the surrounding area as well. It is at the marina where many great boats are berthed. There is a large telescope for viewing on certain nights with the...More

Had a great visit to this historic site. The rebuilt light house is well maintained and taken care of and is certainly easy to get to from the main drag. :)

Worth a visit! Important to note that most of the "touristy" attractions were closed for the low-season--so we did not get to see as much as we would have liked! It's a great view of Lion's Head and the Georgian Bay from this region!

We stopped here on a road trip through the Bruce Peninsular for our picnic lunch. It was absolutely stunning. Well worth an explorative walk along the coast of the lake and to the lighthouse. Beautiful. One minor problem... public washrooms were locked. But there are...More

We actually visit this lighthouse often each year . It is just so much of what Lion's Head is. It is used by boaters to find the marina. We have an amazing picture taken at it in a February 2014

The walk from the beach to the harbour is charming and visually pleasing. The view of the Lions Head and Georgian Bay is a must see. the marina has many boats to please every sailor.

Like others we stopped here just for a quick break. A nice place to wander around for a little bit and have a break from driving. Beautiful views and a playground nearby if you have kids. The lighthouse is neat but nothing unique.

Nothing too spectacular about the lighthouse. It is good to see once but the surrounding areas is gorgeous. It is locked as well so couldn't enter or explore...
