The lighthouse is visible from the waterfront in Sydney, and good views should come from the ferry to Newfoundland. The closest view from land comes by traveling north from Sydney on NS-28 for 8.3 km (5.2 miles) and then turning left onto a rough dirt road that leads to a parking lot overlooking the harbour. From the parking lot, you can walk out on a peninsula at low tide to get a close view of the lighthouse.
The lighthouse is owned by the Canadian Coast Guard. Grounds/tower closed.
