Fodor's Review

About 2 miles north of Pompano Beach you are afforded a beautiful view across Hillsboro Inlet to this lighthouse, often called the brightest lighthouse in the Southeast and used by mariners as a landmark for decades. When at sea you can see its light from almost halfway to the Bahamas. Although the octagonal-pyramid, iron-skeletal tower lighthouse is on private property inaccessible to the public, it's well worth a peek, even from afar. The Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation

Society offers tours about eight Saturdays a year (usually on holiday weekends); call for schedule and tips on viewing vantage points.
