“Climb the spiral staircase.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Docent on duty to answer questions. Flip/flop shoes are not allowed on the staircase, so don't even ask. It's a rule that they won't break for your safety.

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We didn't go when they were giving tours, but it was a nice lighthouse from a distance. We got some great pictures of seagulls flying just around it.

“Built for Dolls--A Charming Miniature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

I last visited this lighthouse fifty years ago, and not much as changed, except some of the gorse is gone. It is very small, particularly compared to other coastal lighthouses, but one can see why it was needed where the river enters the sea. It is difficult not to think of the dangers seamen faced when they entered that river, still daunting even with a breakwater sysem.
The grounds are extensive, there is a nice campground, and acres of terrain for birds and other wildlife.
