This is a fun walk to an island to photograph one of New England's beautiful lighthouses.

Parking is at the end of Barnum Road in the Seaside Park.  Though the lighthouse grounds are accessible the tower itself is not open to the public. 

To access the island you must walk across the breakwater.  Please use caution as it is uneven footing and at times can be slippery. 

From the island you can also see Penfield Reef Lighthouse.
