Walking on the breakwall to reach the tip takes about 45 minutes. It's not always easy going 'cause it's an uneven breakwall. But it's worth it for stunning views, less crowded beaches, swimming, fishing, or hanging. Pack a picnic and spend the day and walk...More

Took a kayaking tour out to Long Point. Very few people on the beach. Heard that it's a long walk, but also saw ferries dropping people off. Very picturesque spot. Crystal clear water, although it was still pretty chilly at the end of July. One...More

Not a lot of tourists even know about this place. Went to Long Point twice. The fist time, we took a quick ferry ride with FLYERS which was lots of fun. We explored the historic lighthouse and monument to the soldier, watched the seals playing...More

Long Point Lighthouse is barely view-able from land or you can walk to it over a strenuous 2.7 mile one-way walk. Get the US Lights app for directions and history.
