Fishing Point Lighthouse

St. Anthony, Newfoundland

Fishing Point Lighthouse

Fishing Point Lighthouse, July, 2002

The Fishing Point Lighthouse was established in 1912, replacing a harbour light that had existed since 1906.  The current tower was erected in 1960.

The lighthouse is easy to find.  Just follow the highway through St. Anthony - the lighthouse is at the end.  Once you get there, you can get to within a few metres of the building for a close view.

The keepers dwelling is now a restaurant called The Lightkeepers, appropriately serving seafood.  Across the road from that is a Viking Restaurant.  Both are apparently worth visiting, although I can vouch for neither since my short visit in 2002 did not allow it.
