On our way to Antigonish, we took a scenic drive to the lighthouse. Breathtaking is how I would describe it. A little out of our way but so worth the drive. It is the "Cabot Trail" of the Merigomish area. It was a beautiful, sunny...More

We visited the Cape George point lighthouse on a nice sunny day. We did not have a picnic lunch but there are picnic tables there. And it is a nice secluded spot to enjoy the ocean. Always fun to see light houses.

The lighthouse is beautiful, for its fresh paint and well maintained lawn/park nearby. You cannot get up to the top, just walk around outside. The view from the park down to the water below is spectacular. The only issue is that it takes a long...More

Take the time to drive to the Cape George Point Lighthouse, and you will not be disappointed. The views are outstanding on this lighthouse that was built in 1968 and is still functioning. There are picnic tables and short hiking trails, so spend some time.
