We took a cab and were impressed with this lighthouse and its views. The history of this lighthouse was so interesting. The cab driver was a resident of Block Island and gave us so many interesting facts about his island.

Near the Mohegan Bluffs, this lovely lighthouse overlooking the ocean sits on a gracious lawn. Perhaps a nice picnicing spot.

we visited the lighthouse as part of our cab tour of the island. The light is very well maintained and looks very good for its age and wear and tear.

Biked here from our hotel in town. Good workout by the way! (Lots of hills getting there). It's probably the most visited spot by bike or moped from town. Unremarkable inside (you have to pay). Lovely views from all around the circumference of the property.

One of the better views from the island you can see out into the ocean and the wind turbines quietly generating clean power. The tour is interesting and informative. Parking can be a little tricky but well worth it.

I highly recommend the tour up the lighthouse. The guide was very knowledgeable; it's a very unique opportunity to be able to go up a lighthouse and learn its history.

The Southeast light is the only green lighted lighthouse on the eastern seaboard. The big rock near the edge of the property is where the lighthouse sat before it was moved. At the time, it was the largest structure moved. They removed the fresnel lens...More

Such great views and you can see all the turbines of the ocean wind field. Great stop when out and about on mopeds on the island

We're lighthouse people, and our braving the sold-out ferry from New London was basically to see the BI lighthouses. This one's a bit farther than people allude to, and all (gently, but surely) uphill. After almost two miles of a nice walk (albeit a bit...More
