Travel Instructions:
Take Route 2 to the western side of Prince Edward Island, and then turn left onto Route 14. After 23.4 km (14.6 miles) turn left onto Cedar Dunes Park Road, which leads to West Point Lighthouse. You can actually spend the night in the tower, if you book far enough in advance, or there are several other rooms in the attached inn. The tower also houses an extensive museum with numerous pictures, lenses, and lighthouse artifacts. The museum/restaurant/inn is open from late May through early October
