This lighthouse was located in the middle of a neighborhood; with no parking or access to it. We had to take few detours due to closure of the roads. Nice to drive by, but not much to do there.

Wanted to see this lighthouse after having been to Gay Head Light, so set out from our rental to reach it. Was pleasantly surprised by all of the beautiful homes en route. While not a “must do” it was a worthwhile detour and diversion. Not...More

We took off early to get in the lighthouses before the rain. No disappointment today on the island on lighthouses. This was the first one that we stopped at. Beautiful views. Limited parking.

You can climb the stairs and go to the top of this lighthouse and get wonderful views of the water and the Island. If you don't want to climb stairs you can get lovely views from the bottom of the lighthouse as well.

Not a very large lighthouse but worth the stop if you are in the area and haven't seen the others on the island. It does cost to get in and has limited hours.

Took the ferry from the Cape for the day with the family, and this was a nice, easy 1.5 mile walk from Oak Bluffs. Nice way to get away from the crowds in the town. Nothing overly special about the lighthouse,unless you are a real...More

This lighthouse is located on my favorite road on all of MV. The view is breathtaking! There are a few parking spots for cars and places to put your bike. There are benches to sit and lots of grass to lay on. At least once...More
