Overview

A wonderful little lighthouse located at Lion's Head on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario. It's the gateway to a municipal harbour, one of the deepest on Gerogian Bay. A peaceful place to relax in the summer and take in the crystal clear waters and magnificent cliffs just opposite the lighthouse. Winter is just as wonderful as the ice builds up on it and the stormy waves crash over the jetty. Well worth a stop in Lion's Head to see it.

The light house is like a focal point to view all that you'd like to see and experience. Beautiful clean water, lights reflecting off the lake . Wonderful building with myth and history.

Nothing spectacular but the surrounding area is beautiful. This area where the lighthouse is located is a great place for star gazing after dark.

This stop was very nice. We walked out to the lighthouse and it was so serene, though there was a sign to watch out for rattlesnakes! The bay was gorgeous and certainly worth the beautiful drive.

A relaxing spot by the water where you can watch the water. Or you could walk past the boats in the marine. The water is clear and you can take a nice walk around.
