North Head Lighthouse

North Head Lighthouse Review

Built in 1898, this lighthouses was needed to help skippers sailing from the north, who couldn't see the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. Stand high on a bluff above the pounding surf here, amid the windswept trees, for superb views of the Long Beach Peninsula. Lodging is available in the Lighthouse Keepers' Residence.
