“Nice resting place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

This is a wee little lighthouse, but it's close to the town's promenade. We enjoyed a walk there, and sat on benches and looked out on the water. It's a very pretty view and calming place to be.

“A delightful introduction to Acadian history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

We highly recommend this walking tour of by Alan Melanson and his delightful "Texacadian" wife, Durline. They are knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides with a genuine interest in sharing the history of the Acadians with visitors to the region. Their story at the end of the tour is a gem!

“History and fun - memorable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

I wholeheartedly recommend taking part in the Acadian Candlelight tour - whether you are interested in Acadian history, eager to learn more about how the early European settlers lived in North America or just want to dive into the Acadian culture (cuisine and dance), this is the tour in Annapolis Royal! The exceptional hosts Durline and Allan give the tour a very personal touch and make the experience unique. Thanks again!

“view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

The view from up here is spectacular, but the lighthouse itself isn't really anything to see. Take a walk around and see the water and all the lovely old homes from here.

“A wooden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

This is typical of many lighthouses on Nova Scotia but you can get up close and personal with this one. You can even sit down on a bench and soak up the view weather permitting.
