Miscou Island Lighthouse


This heritage structure built in 1856 at the very tip of the northeastern part of the province stands guard over the peat bogs and wild beauty of Miscou Island. The original wooden, octagonal tower, still in use, is equipped with a Fresnel lens. Explore the interior of the lighthouse and climb to the top to take in the incredible sweeping views. On site: paved parking area large enough for tour buses, washroom facilities, a large grass area with picnic tables. A fantastic place to enjoy the windswept, sandy beaches while watching for birds.
