It was so easy to get to so no effort getting there. zIt was misty the day we were there so no amazing views but that's why it was put there I suppose!

This lighthouse is easily accessible by car, not a far walking distance from parking. This place has awesome views and lots of photo opportunities, if you are looking for a place to enjoy the sunset, I recommend this place. There is also multiple walking trails...More

After a very short walk from the car you are treated to a spot that is incredible for viewing sunsets. Depending on the time of year, be prepared for mosquitos at dusk.

Beautiful views, great photo opportunities. We loved shelling here & looking for sea glass. Also saw seals out swimming here. Met other nice folks, often offering to take pictures for each other. Wonderful sunset place. Peaceful & serene.

Beautiful view. Easy to access. The community of Brier Island were nothing but kind and welcoming to my husband and I. You cannot beat the view you will find here. Absolutely breath taking.

Beautiful spot for a picnic or to watch the sunset. It's a bit of a drive on a dirt road but worth it.
