Travel Instructions:
Take Highway 2 to its end at Tignish, near the northwest tip of the island. When Highway 2 ends in Tignish, turn left onto Church Street (Route 14), and then make an immediate right onto Dalton Avenue. When Dalton Avenue ends, turn right onto Route 12, and then make your first left onto Judes Point Road. As you near the harbour, veer left onto Founders lane to reach the entrance to the marina where you will find the Big Tignish Lighthouse.
