Whales, porpoises, seabirds, spectacular sunsets, hiking trails – these and more can be seen daily from towering rock cliffs guarded by Grand Manan's Southwest Head Lighthouse. Originally built in 1880, this active lighthouse was replaced with a concrete structure in 1989. You can access dramatic hiking trails from this area, but please be careful. The cliff area is dangerous and requires caution. This is a definite ''must-see'' on Grand Manan Island! Driving directions: Route 1, Exit 60, onto Route 176 to Blacks Harbour, from the ferry, follow Route 776 for 25 km (16 mi.) to the end of the island.
We look forward to welcoming you. Please refer to public health guidelines before planning your trip to New Brunswick.
