Despite visiting the lighthouse on a public holiday when one would expect tourists to be visiting the lighthouse, office and bathrooms were closed. So disappointing and we were not the only visitors there were at least 4 other groups there at the same time.

The staff had a great knowledge about the lighthouse and also about the other lighthouses in the area. The view from above was great and this is a must see. The gravel road to the light house is about 5km from the main road, so...More

Stunning views from the lighthouse, as well as some interesting historic and technical facets being explained. Well worth a visit.

The road was not signposted going north but we stumbled upon it coming back to Port Alfred. The road is a bit rough and long but just as you think you should turn around you get there, quite far off the main road. It looks...More

The lighthouse is really well looked after and the views are truly something special. You do have to pay a small fee to go up to the top but it is honestly worth it.

Popped in here the other day as I was driving past - unfortunately it was closed at the time but it was well maintained and even had some self catering places for rent. Have added this to my list to do sometime soon.

Fortunately the gravel road was recently maintained so the drive there was no problem. We stayed in Kleinemonde so was short drive to get there. The lighthouse is very pretty but small in comparison to others. Not very tall. We arrived during lunch hour so...More

If you like spectacular views or all things nautical, Great Fish Lighthouse is well worth the detour and the somewhat 'rugged' road. Take a picnic and a camera.
