My friends and I went thinking we could get close to the lighthouse but it is gated off. Nice view but not really worth it to see a gated lighthouse.

Beautiful view of the ocean. Wish the still had gate open to coast guard house so you could walk down to the lighthouse but a nice place to stop and take pics

Breathtaking views! Lovely lighthouse at the Coast Guard Station. Unfortunately the gate is now locked so you can not take up close pics of the lighthouse. Nice place to have a picnic and watch the surfers!

Beautiful spot on a sunny day, powerful and awesome on a stormy one. Lots of history surrounds the location from colonial days through WW2.

I love lighthouses and this one delights as well. I love that I can sit on the grass on a blanket and have a picnic or we're happy just watching surfers. Apparently, the waves attract surf boarding fanatics and on a day, with big waves,...More
