Windy Day Lovely Views

This is a lovely view point for watching the sunset, it was windy but we walked around and read some of the plaques and took in the sail boats in the distance.

You can't even access the area around the lighthouse. A boring parking lot saved by a nice view of the ocean - no unique for the coastline in general...

Not much to do here. I am used to lighthouses that are more scenic and you can tour (being from Florida).

You can't go into the lighthouse or its grounds. It is an active light, fenced off with warning signs from Homeland Security. However, next to it is a parking lot and you can walk along the edge of the ocean and it is spectacular. A more interesting place to stop and look at the ocean is half way back to... More

This was a pretty lighthouse with no access since there was a chain link fence surrounding the installation. I guess this is understandable since it is a working lighthouse. Nice view from a distance.

I have been to many lighthouses over the years, but you can't beat this location! It is at the very tip of Pt. Judith and is always popular amongst tourists and locals for the setting. The parking availability is very good. The Ocean views are wonderful. You can see Jamestown Island, Newport and Block Island. Because of the location, the... More

Drove out to watch sunrise and got the welcome site of a wall of fog! Bad timing but I only had the one day to explore. Finding the trail down to the Fisherman's Memorial was a little difficult in the dark but it worked out fine as you're able to get a really nice angle for the lighthouse from the... More

On a grey day, it's well just grey. On a sunny day it's exposed position is wonderful. On a stormy day, it is simply energising.

Fantastic spot on the ocean to take photos, watch the sunrise or set, or eat a picnic lunch. This is a beautiful and unspoiled location. Bring your camera because you will definitely want to take photos!

We walked to point Judith from our hotel, about a mile A real nice round trip if you are staying in the southern part of Narrangasett. The point itself is a hotbed for surfers, both north of it and to the west. The area around the point needs to be explored as well. There are several interesting sites around, both... More
