Don't be fooled, this light was built in 1958 so not traditional by a long shot. Not a lot of places to photograph this Light except standing across the street on the wood boardwalk leading to the beach.

Visited and was pleasantly surprised at location and surrounding Caswell Beach! After snapping pics of light house, head across the board walk path to read all the information posted there about the nearby lighthouses and area wildlife!

Had a great time climbing the stairs with a bit of banter w friends. The views from the top and being able to walk around the parapet were exhilarating. I highly recommend this to all (unless you're afraid of heights!)

Visited on a beautiful Friday in early March. The light is in a pretty spot, but there are no amenities. The light is normally closed. To get up to the top you have to arrange a special tour. Limited parking, no bathrooms. Just a plaque,...More
