Ugly lighthouse. It's behind a fence with not much of a view and has no tour or information or anything. The wife, who is a huge lighthouse fan, wouldn't even get out of the car. Do yourself a favor and skip it.

An odd triangular light house, hard to find, in a residential neighborhood, good luck finding parking.
It is not worth more than a drive-by when leaving Fort Moultrie.

Our goal is to photograph every lighthouse in the US. This one is in our collection, but won't be framed, for sure! Its design is very unusual, as it's triangular. Probably would withstand weather fairly well, Parking is not great to try to get to this; maybe there's someplace else to park, but we sure didn't find it! Signage is less than optimal. Worth a quick stop.

What a beautiful spot! Station 18 by the lighthouse has a wonderful wooden walkway to the beach. Pictures are beautiful on the walkway too. We had a perfect day May 17, 2014 for our vow renewal. You must get permission ahead of time but it was free and no problem at all. They basically want to know you are there. We had a morning wedding at 10 am and the beach was not crowded. Perfect and lovely, I highly recommend!

The streets of Sullivans Island are poorly marked, making navigation difficult for tourists, but I did manage to find the lighthouse. Unfortunately, the lighthouse at Sullivans Island may be the single ugliest lighthouse on the United States mainland. After having spend the better part of an hour trying to find the place, it was a bitter disappointment.
