On a rock out off the coast of Cannon Beach, Oregon and viewable from several places along a few miles of coastline, this light house is not accessible by land (nor sea it would seem). But it's a nice photo op.

If you like touristy things, then this is the place. You tour on your own. Lot's of cheese samples to taste. You come out into the cheese shop and then there is a cafe with lots of cheese items. There is ice cream available.

Any drive to any where along this coast is beautiful. Worth the drive. There are hiking trails and scenic views along the way. Enjoy.

Very cool lighthouse and makes for some great pictures. We saw it from Ecola State Park, which allows for some great views.

We really enjoyed the lighthouse and it's location and to learn more about all of these in the area on the coast. It was a unique opportunity to learn the lives of these folks that were maintaining these before there was electricity!

You can see this from shore. It appears that it used to be a light house but now is a place for rich people's dead bodies. At least a guy told me that. It looks cool from shore. Worth seeing.

Really cool place. You can see it best from The Ecola State park but you can see it from Cannon Beach just not as well. The history of how it was build and how the rock was leveled is really interesting check it out!

Read the history on the lighthouse! Though you can't get to it you can get great pictures from Ecola.
