It was a very humbling experience to see this historic lighthouse. The day may have been gray, but seeing the waves crash against the Emerald Coast was a sight unlike any other. The volunteers were super helpful and the gift shop was nice. Bring good walking shoes for the trails above the lighthouse too!
So cool! It is a .5 mile uphill to the actual light house. It's not paved either but it's a well maintained gravel road. Great history and views. There is a cost to park off $5. Bathrooms are vault toilet.
This light house offers a beautiful bed and breakfast in the main house and a beautiful lower beach to explore. We found a sea lion resting up the river at low tide. There is a slow upward hike to the light house and main house and gift shop. The main house is said to have a friendly ghost.
Pretty little beach in a cove, somewhat sheltered from wind. There is a little hike up to the lighthouse and viewing of it from the beach is not great due to trees. The beach has many caves to explore and it looks like it's a great place to explore tide pools at low tide.
