Can't get close enough to actually see it, but walking the pier is something to do and always nice to see the boats.

Not sure if this is the venue to comment on the whole waterfront, but the new lighthouse pier and the walkway along the shore are great and a tremendous development. Great place for a run in the morning or just to take a walk to...More

The pier was very windy and chilly the day i visited. The pier/boardwalk is a nice place to walk and enjoy the day and view the sunset. It is right next to the port stanley beach and is a nice relaxing spot to visit.

The new pier is a fantastic addition to Port Stanley, strolling along it makes you think you can walk on water, the sound of the waves the beautiful benches, and the fisherman on the end of the pier make it a romantic experience.

The lighthouse is at the end of a long, refurbished pier - a lovely walk and spectacular view of the shoreline from the end.

When you live in the golden horseshoe and spend a lot of weekend touring around, you see a lot of lighthouses, but this isn't even a lighthouse......it's a beacon. Not much to look at and plenty of other fun things to do in town

The municipality has done a great job of restoring the pier. A bit crowded on a summer weekend afternoon but otherwise peaceful & quiet.
