This is a kool lighthouse to photograph, especially at dawn or dusk. I'm not sure if it's a local thing, but there were Dragon boats there when I was there also. Coincidence??

The Lighthouse is a nice place to take photos and would be a good spot to get sunrise/sunset photos. The boardwalk is a nice place to take walks during pleasant days.

Cobourg has one of the most beautiful waterfront districts in the province. While you can't walk right out to the lighthouse, you can feel like you're driving right into Lake Ontario by going down the pier towards the lighthouse! Occasionally, the gate will be closed...More

Looks like construction is going on so you couldn't get close. There was also no information about lighthouse on site or what they were doing.

Went here early in the morning cameras in hand. The drive was easy and the town and marina beautiful. We were the only ones out and were able to walk out and take great pictures of the lighthouse, marina,Victoria Park and the Rotary Harbourfront Park....More

Beautiful views of Lake Ontario! Very picturesque! Love all the sailboats in the harbour. Generally Cobourg is a very charming little town. Perhaps some cafes and restaurants closer to the pier might be nice to enjoy the view while dining.

Not worth a dedicated trip but if you are in the area and want to sit on or walk out on the pier it is very peaceful most of the year. Not in the summer though. The crowds on the beach beside it will drown...More
