I’m a lighthouse fanatic and have seen many on the Atlantic coast. This one is one of the more underwhelming ones I’ve seen. It’s unusual in its structure, but that’s about all that’s interesting about it. We didn’t get too close or walk around because we were on our way to the beach but it’s worth a quick stop.

Neat place to visit. Lots of facts & history posted. Just wish you could tour it and go in. Nice beaches right there too!

Not much you can actually do/see here, but if you're out on the island it is worth taking a few minutes and parking and reading the sign about the lighthouse. The walk to the beach is also right there as well (although no bathroom/shower facilities that I saw), so worth taking a peek as well. Hopefully they'll allow you up there as the history/configuration of it is interesting.

My wife is a Lighthouse fan and we seek out most houses. Nice setting, but the square light house is just average.

This lighthouse is so unique as it is triangular and so different from what you expect to see. It is currently an active lighthouse and there are no tours available. If you are on Sullivan's Island or at Fort Moultree, you truly need to see it. There will be a day that we won't have any lighthouses left.
