Other Lighthouse Information:
Hereford Inlet lighthouse is a near twin of Point Fermin lighthouse in California. In 2003 the white and marroon colored lighthouse was painted a bluff color (the historically accurate color). The grounds are filled with plants and beautiful flowers. Check their website for the hours of operation and the history of the Hereford Inlet lighthouse. They also have a cool virtual tour you can take on their site. Many New Jersey lighthouses, including this one, take part in the annual NJ Lighthouse Challenge.

The Lighthouse Hunters Experience:
We've been here several times over the years on our way to or from other lighthouses. Personally we've found it difficult to photograph the lighthouse from certain angles and distances due to the surrounding plants. We almost forgot that we saw the lighthouse when it was painted a different color. The last time we were here we photographed the lighthouse from the boardwalk.

Photographed it: several times, the last visit was on September 22, 2008
