Surfers' favorite

Popular year round with local surfers. Spectacular during and right after storms. Easy parking. Bring a picnic lunch on a sunny, warm day.

There are not to many places where you can watch the sunrise on one side and set on the other. Narragansett is a beautiful place year round with the breath taking views on the water. I have lived here all my life and I am still amazed at the beauty of it. Whether it's the sun or the moon shining... More

Always a pleasant and relaxing visit. Gorgeous views with benches to sit on for a quick bite to eat and take in the sights. Take out what you bring in and please pick up after your dog!

This lighthouse is etched in my soul. I have loved it since my birth in 1941 when my parents first carried me there on our summer vacation at the Point. It is a symbol of all I cherish about my birthplace RHODE ISLAND!!

The views from here are stunning! Wonderful little peaceful area to watch the ocean do its thing under the watchful eye of a beautiful lighthouse.

Great light house with a great view! Beware of cliffs ;). Has a gift shop. Off the beaten track. Great for families, friends and couples..

Very scenic spot for photos not only of the lighthouse but of the rocky coastline, Cannot access the light house but you can get close enough for some photos.

Gorgeous views from a working Coast Guard base. If you're lucky you'll see the loads of surfers who play in the waves which are apparently perfect for those looking for some moderate adventure.

This is a really nice lighthouse with a parking lot and view of the coast. The only downside is it is locked up behind a fence. I'm not sure what you need to do to get on the other side of it... but seems crazy that this is public land and the public is fenced out.

As a lighthouse lover, I visit every one I can find. This one is closed off by Department of Homeland Security, so you can't get up close for pictures.
