Point Prim Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse on Prince Edward Island. It is unique, as it is the only round brick lighthouse on PEI and one of three in Canada. It was designed by the architect, Isaac Smith, who also created Province House in Charlottetown, and was built in 1845, by Richard Walsh. Prim Lighthouse is 60 feet above the ground and 80 feet above sea level. It offers spectacular views of the Northumberland Strait.

You can climb the lighthouse to the top and enjoy the views! Included with the price of admission is an optional guided tour. Or you can stroll the grounds, where there are informational display boards to read. There is also a gift shop in the Keeper's Cottage with lots of merchandise to tempt you!

Come on down and visit our lighthouse - we'd love to see you!

Admittance is $5.00 for Adults and $3.50 for Children under 12. Prices include HST. You can also opt for a guided tour with the price of admittance.
