We actually did a tour of 3 lighthouses on PEI. Apparently, there is a 2 lighthouse tour plus a wine tasting and a 3 lighthouse tour without the wine tasting. We booked through our cruise ship and they selected the tour without the wine tasting....More

A pretty drive through the countryside and you arrive st the tip of Point Prim. The lighthouse was the first to be built on PEI more than 150 years ago. Good information panels explain the history of the construction and its significance to Confederation.

Mu husband climbed the steps in the lighthouse while I wandered the little gift shop. A lovely array of goods that are definitely not of the usual tacky touristy variety. I bought a number of gifts to bring home for friends.

We visited several lighthouses during our trip to PEI, and this one was our favourite. It is nicely located overlooking a red rocky and sandy beach. The views are incredible and worth the trip.

Hi, we're glad you enjoyed your visit! We enjoy the cruise ship buses rolling in! There is a charge for visitors ($5 for adults and $3.50 for children under 12, HST included).

The point itself is dramatically scenic. We did not pay a fee to go up the lighthouse since many reviewers indicated how steep the access was. Nevertheless the surrounding is stunning. Worth the drive to the point.

I enjoyed stepping back in time while climbing the steps of the Point Prim Lighthouse. It is a gem of old architecture and I can just imagine being the keeper back in the day. For just $5.00 you are given access to climb the steep...More

This has to be one of the most beautiful places on the island- amazing view, history and beach. Not to mention next to the chowder house and their outstanding food.
