Fodor's Review

It isn't the South Shore's most photogenic lighthouse—the one at Peggy's Cove wins that award—but this one finishes a close second, scoring points for its dramatic vistas and the dearth of other camera-clutching tourists. Erected in 1962 on the site of an earlier lighthouse, the concrete structure rises 75 feet above the entrance to Yarmouth Harbour. The adjacent keeper's quarters houses a small museum, a tearoom serving local treats, and a gift shop.
