  • It is a lovely coastal drive and stopping at the lighthouse to look at the view made a good stop off. 
  • This is a beautiful side trip. There are several benches to sit on and take in the views from the Point. The lighthouse has tours, unfortunately it was not open when I arrived but it was still worth a...  more »

  • What an excellent landmark. Make sure to visit when volunteers are on duty. You get a great tour and information about the history and the unique engineering of the light itself. As I climbed the circular steps up I was able to fully experience the circular building and the brickwork.
  • Beautiful view! Sweet and knowledgeable volunteers. It was mentioned to us that it is only open once a week now and may close completely because of needed repairs and no funds. Be sure to leave a donation!
  • You can get a nice view of the nearby beaches and the passing ferries from the lighthouse. I'm not sure if they ever open up the lighthouse to the public, but it was locked when I went. The lighthouse is a short ride from the bikepath and Wood's Hole, but you can drive there too! The parking lot looks small and fits about 5 cars. Either way, you should check this out if you are in the area.
  • Iconic and historic regional lighthouse on a very scenic and classic New England bluff overlooking The Hole, with a nice view towards Martha's Vineyard. It is at the far end of, and overlooks, Nobska Beach. It is a easy bike ride or short walk or drive from Woods Hole. Also a lovely destination for night-time walks when the moon is out. There is a convenient and useful wooden bench, with a memorial plaque, around the corner on the ocean side of the road across from the lighthouse.
  • Fantastic views on Cape and Islands...it's open for public and free....
