Cabot Head Lighthouse Museum

Cabot Head Road runs through the hamlet of Dyer's Bay and becomes increasingly austere until it reaches the lonely promontory. The Cabot Head Lighthouse, built in 1896, is a museum that contains nature displays and historical artifacts. The tower provides a panoramic view of the shoreline. A walkway leads to the Wingfield Basin and the shoreline lookout has a picnic area. Several shipwrecks lie within the natural harbour and they can be easily explored by snorkeling. Towering cliffs of the Cabot Head Provincial Nature Reserve make an impressive backdrop to this esoteric place. Nestled alongside the basin is a stone lodge that houses the Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory. Nature research groups use it to monitor bird migrations that follow the peninsula.
