This spectacular and unique lighthouse is the second most photographed lighthouse in Nova Scotia.
The Cape has been welcoming visitors since 1604 when Samuel de Champlain landed and named the area “Cap Forchu”, meaning forked tongue of land.
By 1878, Yarmouth was at its peak and was the second largest port of registry in Canada. Here the lighthouse could protect vessels both approaching and entering the harbour. The Cape Forchu light, also commonly known as the Yarmouth Light, was constructed in 1839.
