We sailed in here back in 1984 when the whole area was very undeveloped and delightfully funky. Since the lighthouse was closed for renovation back then, we made a point of returning 25 years later. It was still a nice place to visit, although the surrounding area now has some upscale waterfront homes.

Lighthouse Landing Restaurant (Bar)

Ponce Inlet, Florida

Directly opposite the real lighthouse, the Lighthouse Landing Restaurant has constructed a miniature 35 foot version of the light.

This is a quaint, funky restaurant on the water and certainly worth a visit.

Ponce de Leon Light house (Point of Interest)

The 1887 lighthouse has been restored and is operational as a privately maintained navigational aid.

It is the tallest lighthouse in the USA and is constructed only from brick, without any steel reinforcement. The walls are 8 feet thick at the base.

The museum around the base of the light is well worth a visit. One can climb the circular satircase to the tp for magnificent views.
