Cape Henry Lighthouse, Virginia Beach Reviews

  • Nice. But not good if you have smaller children. They have to be a certain height to go up and you can't carry children. May be common sense but my husband didn't think of it and we didn't get to go up. But still great views, clean location, and nice. But please remember you are on an active military base. No speeding.

  • Very inexpensive lighthouse and one of the smaller ones on the East Coast, so it is a good one for your first. You will have to go through a military check since it is on a base. Be prepared with your id, registration, and proof of insurance. The lighthouse is pretty, but there are a lot of stairs. There is no public bathroom, but there is a decent sized portable john.

  • Very cool to see! It is on a military base so expect to have your car searched, they will keep 1 drivers license that you pick up when you leave. You can get an Uber there but they need to have a military pass to get in the base.

  • Awesome experience climbing this lighthouse and seeing the bay for miles around. I came to Virginia for my first visit in 2000, met some great local people and partied like there was no tomorrow at the campground for about 2 weeks. A good time I'll never forget.

  • Now that’s a nice lighthouse! After being disappointed by the Old Point Comfort Lighthouse, we went here and were rewarded with a beautiful climbable lighthouse, with helpful volunteers to guide us through. It was a bit of a workout climbing all those steps, and the view from the tower was amazing!
