The only road to this lighthouse is to drive on a long dusty dirt road, which is in not very good shape. Several construction vehicles kicked up a cloud of dust every times they passed. We kept closing our car windows when that happened. When...More

We drove on a road with lots of potholes, but we kept on going, until the road became way worse. Then we walked. At one time, while we were walking towards the lighthouse, the road was filled with dirt. We started to sink in it....More

I wouldn't say this lighthouse is a "must see," but if you are looking for something to do and the weather isn't great this would be an okay drive to make. It is a dirt road so the drive can be rough. There will be...More

The best thing about going to the lighthouse ( it is fenced off ) is the drive across the pastoral island and the view across to the town of Cheticamp. This is not a must do, but is pleasant if you have the time.

We were a little early for dinner so we drove out to the light house. The road is rough. so take it slow. Watch out for cattle in the road also.

There are several things to see at the Lighthouse. For us the most interesting was the hike down to the shore. We were there as the tide was coming in, so we had to be careful to climb back up at the proper time. The...More

I love lighthouses, and make it a point to find one on every trip I take. So far, so good. Anyway, we drove out here one night after dinner to watch the sunset, since we were staying on Cheticamp Island and this was just up...More

A local photographer told us to make the drive out to the point and it was great. Had to watch for cows that roam free but they were all down at the water. The lighthouse was nice to see with all the water around and...More

The drive out is a bit rough, but has a great view of the town. The area around the lighthouse is open, which offers great views of the ocean. I recommend visiting around sunset. Here, I saw the best sunset I have ever seen!

We drove out here to see the lighthouse, but were disappointed. The island is easy to find. The road to the lighthouse is on private land and there is a sign asking you to not bother the cows. There are free range cows. The road...More
