What can you say about a light house at the end of the road... you have to see this and the views to truly appreciate what is here.

Located on the western shore of Brier Island on a dirt road pocked with pools of water. Not recommended unless you are driving an SUV. We were lucky enough to witness the sunset over the lighthouse.

My husband and I went in August of this year. We were told by the owner of the B&B we stayed at that this is a great spot to catch some fantastic sunsets on the Bay of Fundy. She was absolutely right!

Walked up to the lighthouse on our first evening, missed the sunset but still was a nice walk. Had a picnic lunch on the rocks the next day- quite lovely spot.

This is an excellent place to go to watch the sun going down into the Bay of Fundy. Make sure you are there at least 20 minutes before and stay at least 20 to 30 minutes after the sun disappears - wonderful to see.

My daughter and I went here just before sunset. It was so gorgeous!! There were tons of gulls, and the beauty of the ocean was outstanding. This is view not to miss!

Great place to take in the awesome views. We were lucky enough to see some whales from the shore and seals close by. The views and sights are some beautiful. I would definitely go back to Brier Island.

The lighthouse on the rocky shoal is by far the best. Seals can be seen from the shore and the view is as good as it gets. I'm not sure what kind of seals they were but I don't think they were navy seals.

Wonderful location. I have been here on two occasions. Once for a picnic lunch on the cliffs and the other was a night under the stars (we camped here!) Just beautiful , also very fun to see all the birds and seals around :) Great...More

Pretty cool when you can watch the whales while sitting on the rocks by the lighthouse. Sunset was spectacular from there.
