Even though we were only able to view the lighthouse from the outside, we still enjoyed visiting the lighthouse. I believe we read after the fact that they only have tours at 9:00 and 9:15am. Thankfully there were placards out near the parking area which...More

It's a small lighthouse in an unique position in the middle of a highway. You can park in a lot across the street for pocs.

Please make this a must-see. Short of going to Ship Island, this is one of the best views on the coast. While a pic from the Visitor Center is great, the best experience is going when the lighthouse is open and you can climb to...More

Such a beautiful symbol of times gone by. Not sure how much of the original structure is still there but it sure is beautiful to see. This year the house has Christmas lights draped all around and looks awesome.

Very small lighthouse, in the middle of a roadway. Across from the visitor center. Not sure why this is so featured.

This is a good stop for a photo op and to read a little history about the lighthouse. They only give tours for 45 minutes in the morning, so otherwise you are on your own. The pier is right next to the lighthouse, another place...More

I loved the history of the lighthouse, but it was surprisingly small. It is worth a stop. Especially since it is sandwiched right between the pier and the visitors center. They are also worth a stop, so a three for one.
