The best view on the island! Climb the historic lighthouse steps for spectacular view of Atlantic and the island below. For an extra special experience get a ticket to climb it at night during the full moon ( only available during the summer).
A bit of a ride, but worth the trip. Besides seeing one of the most famous lighthouses in the world, you will also drive over Oregon Inlet over to beautiful Pea Island.
