Visited Victoria day weekend so property was not fully open. Restaurant and gift shop closed but lighthouse grounds open. Walking along coastline was nice. Debris from storms everywhere but this only added to the charm. Lobster traps, driftwood, remains of crustaceans. This is the ocean...More

We drove out to the lighthouse not knowing what to expect. Desolate location. Shiny paint job. Well laid-out parking lot. Even a gift shop. The winds howling in from seas on two sides. None of this can detract from the main attraction - the lighthouse...More

Impressive structure but was expecting to see artifacts and furniture. Four storey high with some history facts and two guides to answer questions. Nice view from the top but fee charged should be lower. We visited many lighthouses throughout the Atlantic provinces and this one...More

On October 1st, we drove to Miscou Lighthouse from Tracadie (less than 1 hour) & spent some time walking around this grassy park area - picnic tables & shelters, public washrooms very clean, nice long sandy beach. Due to off-season, sadly the gift shop in...More

We drove out to the far northeast top of New Brunswick to find this old lighthouse. Very nice ladies there to give you it's history. You can get right up to the top and the old glass lense is still there. Nice beach area to...More
