I was unprepared for the site of this adorable lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers’ homes. It is a mini version of so many other lighthouses I’ve seen on the East Coast and on Lake Superior. Very cute!! It wasn’t open to tour when were there...More

What a beautiful area for a hike, day at the beach, picnic, and wildlife viewing. You can even rent the caretakers quarters to spend the night. The view is amazing too. If you park in the upper lot and have trouble walking down a path,...More

We made a day trip to Vashon Island and paid a visit to Pt. Robinson Park. We parked the vehicle and walked down steps and a dirt path to the beach area and light house. Beautiful view of Mt. Rainier. It was a beautiful day...More

Nice short walk to a cute little lighthouse and a walk along the beach. Check out the fun driftwood 'cottages' that appear to pass for the local equivalent of sandcastles at the beach, albeit bigger.

It's on south Vashon Island, it's a very nice spot, it's got a great view of Mt. Rainier, but, as hikes go, it's pretty short.

This was a neat little beach park that was awesome to explore. There's a decent stretch of beach that we collected mounds of colorful and smooth rocks from (rock nerds here). The lighthouse was the perfect place for pictures and the tide pools were filled...More

A short walk down through the woods on a wet and leaf-strewn damp path takes you to the tiny (still working!) lighthouse. You can't go in but it is still peaceful to walk around. Lots of weathered logs and driftwood are piled on the shoreline,...More

Great place to take a short walk/hike Well kept area very quiet and peaceful. Definitely worth checking out if you were on the island. Cool to watch the boats go by. Nice place to take pictures.

From the Fauntleroy Ferry (Seattle) it's about 20 or 30 minutes. Closer to 20, if I remember correctly. Depends a bit on how busy the Farmer's market is.
