Limited parking near the lighthouse prevented us from visiting. We had to settle for a drive by. Nice area with beautiful homes nearby.

I enjoyed the bike ride out to see the lighthouse. You can walk up to the lighthouse itself but cannot access any other structures. There is a plaque to provide additional information but no staff that we saw. Worth it for the drive/bike and view but not much if you are in to historical buildings.

We love visiting lighthouses. It appeared you could go up into this one. However, we drove past it at least 5 times and there was never a place to park (we were there on a Monday, not the weekend). The only parking lot only held 5-6 cars. The road was curvy and narrow so there was no place to park... More

One of the most beautiful settings surrounding a lighthouse. Worth the visit, but parking is tough (there are only a few spaces in front of the lighthouse) but your eyes will never forget the expansive views from high above the hill overlooking the water.

The lighthouse makes a great backdrop for pictures. You can't go inside but you can look into the lighthouse through windows at ground level. The views of the water are beautiful. If I ever get back to Cape Cod, I'm including this as part of my trip.

Once you can get a parking spot. Spaces for only 7ish cars. No other parking available. Had to go past n come back till someone pulled out. Inside was closed. But the views are great. So kinda disappointed.

Historical lighthouse, one of the oldest, but go for the view. It overlooks a beach and then the open water.
