Beautiful setting on top of the beach. This makes the trip worthwhile whether you care about lighthouses or not. Like virtually all of Cape Cod's lighthouses, Nauset is not open to the public. Settle for the view of the lighthouse; the historical information; go to the beach; visit the Three Sisters lighthouses just down the road. A vital piece of Northeastern history.

Spent some time on the beach and then took short hike to see the lighthouse. Had to make a couple trips back due to beach being crowded and unable to park but worth the trip back

Nice piece of history, great views and perfect proximity to Nauset Beach. Good way to spend part of your day, go early so you can hit the beach and get parking.

Great for pictures, swimming, long walks, and just good old relaxing.
Light house looks like the ones in story books.
Bring bug spray!

This is the lighthouse on the chips. Worth visiting just to say u saw it but there was no way to get in to the lighthouse so there was not much to see.
