  • I love this light and the grounds around it. I also love that they have a "Frame" for you to take "selfies" in for instagram to get your picture with the light. It's set up close to the parking area. ...  more »

  • Free tours of the light house are offered from May to October. Same light house that use on famous Cape Cod chip logo. Very nice beach (steep hill to go to beach) We came on early Aug. The circular climb is a little dizzying but not nearly as high as some other lighthouses. At each tour they allow up to 12 people. Our kids (7 and 10) love the view. Portable toilets 😔
  • I love lighthouses but there was no lighthouse parking, only beach parking. Looks nice and quaint but wasn't willing to spend the money just to visit the lighthouse. If we were planning a beach and lighthouse day, I would have been willing to pay.
  • Cool experience to see and hear about, as we were there during one of the lighthouse tours. Downside is parking - If you get there early (before 4:30) your chance to park is probably minimal unless it's a very ugly day - it shares a parking lot with Nauset light beach.
  • Visited on mariner's day when they had volunteers offering informative tours. There are some great stories about the lighthouse starting as 3 different towers, the changes in fueling techniques, the town coming together to get the lighthouse moved further from the shore, and the upgrade to a newer cast iron lighthouse. It's the lighthouse on the cape cod brand chip bag, which is cool. Honestly, though, it wasn't the most beautiful lighthouse or view out of the ones I've seen on the cape, but if you're in the area it's certainly worth stopping (especially if you're on a budget!).
  • I love lighthouses and New England is like a playground for me! This particular lighthouse is the one that appears on the Cape Cod potato chips bags. It is a beautiful, old and well-preserved structure, placed in an amazing location and easily accessible by car. There is plenty of parking lots nearby so relax and enjoy the visit.
