Easy to get to with a vehicle. Just beyond the lighthouse is a lovely parking spot, and beyond that to the right is access to the beach.

Another beautiful lighthouse site on Grand Manan. If your timing is right you may even spot a whale off the coast.

Lots of locals go down to "the whistle" to watch the sun set over the land in Maine. It is beautiful. There's the usual views of cliffs on the west side of the island and some interesting rocky "beach" there. People will probably be picking dulse.

A viewing platform with no railings next to the lighthouse offers a stunning view over the local vegetation to watch the sunset.

Locally known as "the Whistle," this lighthouse is the end point (or perhaps the beginning point) of some beautiful hikes along the cliffs on the north end of the island and along the beach on the west side of the island.

Went here 2 times to enjoy the sunsets at The Whistle. Lots of locals come here too and it was fun talking with them. Nice seating and parking is adequate, but may need to walk a short distance. The view is spectacular and we even saw minke whales while waiting for the sun to set. Don't miss going!

If you want a romantic spot to watch the sunset go here. We brought a blanket and snuggled together while watching the sunset over GM. Keep going past the lighthouse and down to the right. Park up top so you do not get stuck or blocked in. This is the spot where all the locals go.

Get there early if you want a place to park. Nice and peaceful location to watch a sunset. We went two nights that we were on the island.
