You can only view this Lighthouse from the outside. You can not climb or go inside this Lighthouse. It is important to see if you want to be sure that you see all the Outer Banks lighthouses. It does not take long to stop and take a picture if you are on the island.
That's the beauty about going somewhere in low season--no crowds. But be aware that many shops and eateries are closed in the off season. We enjoyed the visit to the lighthouse--did not realize it was the 2nd oldest in the United States. We were able to see four lighthouses on our trip to the OuterBanks. Wonderful old lighthouse!
i have been in love with this light house from the moment i laid eyes on it. i even have it tattooed on my arm. it makes my heart happy
We were down on Ocracoke visiting and decided to visit the lighthouse as we had seen the others up on Hatteras Island. This is much smaller than other lighthouses in the area and is closed to the public. We got a photo and moved on with our day.
Ocracoke Lighthouse is an absolutely beautiful place to walk around and take in the sights. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and can make some beautiful photos. Unfortunately you cannot go inside the lighthouse, but it is still a great place to walk around. This is a must see.
My family and I visit here a lot,this past year we stayed at a house that was a walking distance from the Ocracoke Lighthouse and it is very beautiful and relaxing. This is definitely a place you would want to be with your family and/or friends.
Even though you can't go inside the old lighthouse, it is still a must see. The grounds are very attractive and the crowds are very small.
It's a pretty light house. But sitting next to Lighthouse you don't have a view of the ocean. Lighthouse itself is in use and therefore closed to the public. So you really can't go inside and see anything.
