It was freezing cold with the Winter winds (bring isolating coats and warm hats) but nevertheless the view is breathtaking and the place is just charming. There is a large parking lot with restrooms and even a nice playground for the kids.

This whole area is beautiful, and the lighthouse is just one of the many stops to make along the way. The beach/bay was beautiful. Great beach combing for sure. The weather was cool with intermittent rain, but we forged on! Their bathrooms are a bonus....More

Call the resort/.hotel you are staying at. They might offer shuttle service. Many offer bicycles which are fun to use getting around.
