  • This is a great way to get to and from Falmouth to Woods Hole. Although the lighthouse isn't open yet, this is a beautiful spot for some scenic picture-taking. 
  • Whenever I am driving along this stretch of shore, I usually try to stop and visit this iconic lighthouse. Recently it was acquired by the Friends of Nobsca Light who have great plans to open the ligh...  read more »
  • Rainy day on the Cape. So we spent the day chasing lighthouses. This was our first stop. Very picturesque. 
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful all around. Great view, great vibe. Worth the stop if you are in the Cape.
  • Great views not alot of parking
