Lighthouse Point Provincial Nature Reserve

Lighthouse Point Provincial Nature Reserve occupies about 100 hectares on the island's northeastern spit and has several hiking trails, a long sandy beach that extends down the island's east side and the Pelee Lighthouse. On the west side of the spit, Lake Henry Marsh offers wildlife viewing opportunities and spectacular sunsets.

The Blue Racer Snake, the Eastern Spiny Soft-shelled Turtle, and the Smallmouth Salamander are among several rare species found within the reserve. There are remnants of deciduous forests, savannas and an expanse of wetland rich in aquatic plants. The reserve provides an excellent opportunity for watching aquatic birds. The nature reserve has no buildings but the beautifully restored lighthouse, built in 1833, which stands at the tip of the spit.

An Ecological Trail System offers hikers and cyclists access to out of the way interest points and nature appreciation. The nearby Noah Garno Trail traverses Brown's Road alvar between Harris Garno Road and Brown's Road, offering easy access through rare wildlife and botanical habitat.
