Cute little light house. You can’t enter. It’s near a beach and looks quite pretty. Right next to Richards seafood restaurant.

This little lighthouse is easy to find, beautifully maintained, and has a functional revolving light at the top (no visitors are allowed inside). Be sure to read the plaque on the side, dedicated to sailors lost at sea, and continue to the lovely, quiet beach...More

It's a sweet little light house. Don't expect to be able to go in. We knew ahead of time that we wouldn't be able to. It's a pretty lighthouse, and the beach in front was fun - my boys all enjoyed it.

You can't go inside the lighthouse, but it looks nice from the outside. Beautiful water and quiet shore line; really enjoyed walking there.

Covehead Harbour Lighthouse is on a beautiful sandy beach, we enjoyed walking along the beach looking for crabs & shells. The lighthouse is well maintained/preserved.

Makes a nice spot to stop and have a picnic. Trails to the beach give nice views of the area. The beach area is protected and calm.

There is not much to see, you cannot go inside of it. The great thing to do is READ the plaque explaining what happened off shore during a storm when the ships got caught on low tide and so many sailors drowned. I think stuff...More

We stayed at Lyons Cottages for 5 days, so we were able to see this lighthouse on many of our daily excursions. Love lighthouses in general, so if you do, too, you will appreciate this one and all the lighthouses on Prince Edward Island.

Good example of the modern unmanned lighthouses that dot the shoreline of PEI. Cool to see at night too.
