It's really too bad that the lighthouse is surrounded by an imposing chain link fence that even inhibits getting a good photograph of it. On the good side, there is a good-sized free parking lot with views along the shore and, if you're lucky (we...More

we drove to this light after the ferry. The view from the ferry was distant and not very clear. The light is nice , the signage to the light is very good.

A great place to enjoy a bowl of chowder and some clam cakes from Iggy's or Aunt Carrie's while watching the surf and the surfers. Sometimes there's even a food truck there.

A place of quiet solitude at the right time. You can feel the spirits of the sea. A working lighthouse. Great views of the crashing surf. No fee for this one.
