The tour of the lighthouse that is open from 11 am till about 4-5 pm from mid week to Sunday is a must. A senior couple was volunteering at the lighthouse and acted as our tour guides.

Terrible Tilly they call it. There's not a lot to say, other than it is an interesting sight. I hope you travel with binoculars, it's view-able without but more interesting close up.

Yep for all those fans of the goonies this is the lighthouse that Mikey saw. When he held up that piece and said " the lighthouse,the rock and the restaurant all line up". You can't really get close to it but it is amazing that it stands tall for all to see for so long
