I have enjoyed visiting this lighthouse and having my picture taken on front of it. The lighthouse grounds are well taken off and maintained by the island residents.

Day or night this is a great spot for amazing views. It is one of my favorite places to watch the sunset. But I also enjoy coming to sit up here mid day to get some great photographs.

We weren't able to view the inside or the museum, but the quaint lighthouse is beautiful, as is the view of the island and the ocean!

This is at the top of the hill and the terminus for several trails. There is also a museum with a $5 entrance fee. As one would expect for a lighthouse, the views are commanding and impressive. The village and the rest of the island...More
