  • A very cool, but dangerous, hike to see a magnificent lighthouse. The hike makes it incredibly clear why the lighthouse is needed! The tides here are an amazing testament to the power of nature, rising 5ft/hr and can leave people stranded without hope of rescue for 8hrs. Be careful! At low tide the hike requires a tricky crossing of seaweed-laden rocks, a sand beach, several steep and rickety ladders that illustrate just how high the tide goes, and a cute little bridge.
  • This is quite the experience compared to a regular lighthouse visit! The lighthouse area is only accessible during low tides. You climb down a steep ladder to the exposed shore area, then walk along a bit until climbing back up to walk around the lighthouse. There is a modest admission fee, but the views and adventure to get there is well worth your time!
