 Black Point, NB    
Lighthouse accessible by car and a short, easy walk.
Description: Black Point Lighthouse, a skeleton tower with an enclosed, square, central portion, was established in 1967. Although the tower may not be one of the more attractive lighthouses, it is the only one of its kind in New Brunswick and is still equipped with a fourth-order drum dioptric lens.

Formerly, the middle third of the square, central column was painted red, with the upper and lower thirds painted white. However, in 2009, the bottom third of the column's enclosure was missing.

The tower is 17.7 m (58 feet) tall and displays a yellow light that has the following characteristic: 4 s on, 2 s off, 2 s on, 2 s off.

Location: Located at the northern end of Lamèque Island, marking the western entrance to Miscou Harbour.
Latitude: 47.884389
Longitude: -64.623611
