Fodor's Review

Hiking trails and a boardwalk lead to a sandy beach here, but the park's main attraction is its two lighthouses, which share the lofty bluff above. One is still working; the other, built in the early 1920s, houses the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Interpretive Centre, which recounts the history, lore, and vital importance of the province's lights. Amenities: parking (free); toilets. Best for: walking.
