This little light may be a bit more challenging to identify. There are actually two names for this light and it is not located in the US.

It sits on an island that ended up being renamed because the original name of the island was "befitting" of the resort that was built on said island. The resort is advertised on television from time to time here in the north east.

What lighthouse is it?

I think this might be one from your Caribbean adventure this year... Hog Island perhaps?

Yep, originally, it was known as the Hog Island lighthouse. The name was changed to the Paradise Island lighthouse when the built the Atlantis Resort on the island...

Hmmmm... I'm going to this really swanky resort called Atlantis on Hog Island in the Bahamas. Guess that wouldn't sound too swanky??? LOL

This shot was taken departing Nassau looking back toward the docks near the shopping district.
