Actually, it's both. In some experiments, you can interpret light as a beam of particles to explain the results (eg, when studying mirrors or lenses). In others, regarding difraction for example you cannot. Picture light as little balls going through a slot, under certain conditions this balls will appear in places that you wouldn't expect. Try using a laser and thin slot to see a difraction patern and you'll get the idea.

It's called duality. No one ever saw a light particle but some experiments prove it acts like a particle, other prove it acts like a wave (both very interesting experiments, great read).

Like Marianne said, it is both. If this question relates to a specific experiment then the answer depends on the perameters of that experiment. A difraction expirament will show that light is clearly a wave, while low-energy packet emmisions will show that it is clearly a particle.

it largely depends on what experiment you are using to determine it.

Its probably neither. We like to throw things in with previous groups but the fact is light is really different from anything else.
