Not worth the bother even if you are in the area to check out. People are prevented from accessing the area and taking a picture is next to impossible.

Very sad that when for years we were able to walk around the lighthouse, picnic, enjoy the scenery and refreshing air- -a favorite place- and now all blocked off by Dept of Homeland Security.

A guide book highly recommended coming here and we went out of our way to come to a lighthouse behind a big fence. People were hanging out in the parking lot getting drunk on a Saturday afternoon. No beach that I could see. I left...More
