If you are a lighthouse enthusiast, you must plan a trip here. Unfortunately, there are luxury highrise apartments being built here so there is a lot of construction and fencing blocking the surrounding lighthouse area. We could not find a way to get close, but...More

This is a little tricky to find but worth the effort. Lighthouse was not open but was able to walk across bridge to the lower deck.

Ok, needs a little work. It's a little hard to get here, past a big fence with barbed wire. Not sure what's going behind the barbed wire. The lighthouse is falling into disrepair and lacks much charm, but it was a nice enough walk.
