If you are already in Door County, this is a worthy spot to visit, especially if you can do so for sunrise or sunset while the light is on. The beach is entirely made of shells and depending on the tide, you can walk out rather far.
You will arrive at a parking lot that is on the mainland. Once parked, you will need to walk across the land bridge to Cana Island where you will come to a small building to pay an admission fee. Hours and Fees are below.
Once on the island, you can walk around and explore the light keeper's house, the lighthouse itself, and the shoreline.
