  • This is a public beach and it is a great venue for a beach wedding. Beautiful path to the lighthouse beach, flat terrain, gorgeous views. The lighthouse is a bonus for photos.  more »
  • Go take a walk out to this historic landmark right on the edge of the Edgartown Harbor. Look back at beauty of Edgartown or vastness on the inlet.  more »
  • We snapped some lovely photos of the Edgartown Lighthouse - beautiful, quaint town & lovely area to visit. The lighthouse appeared deserted when we visited - would have liked to visit the top.  more »
