Gilbert's Cove Lighthouse

You can enjoy walking along the scenic shoreline or just relax and listen to the ocean and the waves rolling in.

If you enjoy old buildings and lighthouses, you can look around inside the old lighthouse itself. It was built in 1904 and had only two light-keepers throughout its years of service, and both being from the same family.
