  • There are two lighthouses on the island and this is one of the must see places on the island. It has been very well restored. There is not much to it but it is an important part of our 19th century hi...  more »
  • A great deal of history and environmental issues connected to this structure. We witnessed its move several years ago 
  • Always check to make sure open, seasonal. Old school food truck located on lighthouse property. Grab an original RI Del's lemonade.

  • Block Island is like entering into a time machine. After taking the ferry across, first look, same view as thirty to forty years back. A quaint Island full of activities, biking, walking, hiking, touring the famous Southeast Lighthouse. It was the first lighthouse ever attempted to be moved! The nearly year long project was a National newsreel. People wanted to know how it was even possible. Others curious to see if it would be rescued in time or meet it's doom, being claimed by eroding coast or crashing down from the move. It has been 25years and the project still raises curiosity. A great place to explore!
  • I have walked from Ballard's up to the light, taken a cab and rented mopeds to come out here. I did the tour and climbed to the top once (it was $5 but may have gone up by now), well worth it for the view/photos. Awesome spot!
  • This a beautiful stop on Block Island that looks to the south out to the Atlantic Ocean. You can see the construction work being done on the wind farm 3 miles offshore. By 2017 the wind farm should be in operation. If you are making a bike / moped tour around the island is definitely a place to stop. There is also a food truck there during the summer months.
  • Nice walk or bike ride from New Harbor. Once you're there you have views of the Light as well as the ongoing construction of the Block Island Wind Farm. There's a gift shop and small xhibit room at the ground floor of the Light, and for a fee you can climb up to the top of the Light on a guided tour.
  • Absolutely worth the donation to the preservation group for the climb up. What a unique and beautiful building. The views from the grounds and the tower are breathtaking.
