The lighthouse located at Five Islands Lighthouse Park has been moved back 4 times over the years as the frost, weather and tides cause a portion of the bank to wash away each year. The last time, it was moved 7km west to its current location at this park. The lighthouse is open to visitors during the day – you can even climb up to the light to get a bird’s-eye view of the area!
