Fishing Point (also known as Fox Point) lies about half a kilometer (1/3 mile) south of Moore’s Point, which marks the south entrance to St. Anthony Harbour.
The lighthouse is accessible by road. There is also a hiking trail leading from the town to “Lighthouse Point”.
The lighthouse consists of a square, steel tower, sheathed in red and white wood clapboard. One of the dwellings was acquired from the Canadian Government and has been established as a cafe and activity centre for tourists.
