Interesting history, but there is not much else to see here. The lighthouse is utilitarian, not the typical New England-esque lighthouse right on the water most are used to seeing. The lighthouse sits on top of a small bluff that is now a park. I would recommend visiting for the history if you are in the area but I would... More

We visited the East End Lighthouse Park while touring the island by rental car on a Sunday which worked out very well as most things were closed, outside of the tourist oriented establishments, reducing traffic and making driving on the left hand side, with the many roundabouts, more manageable. A little hard to find, head east on Sea View Road... More

If you are expecting a picturesque lighthouse majestically poised next to the ocean, then you will be disappointed after you climb to the top of the steps. On the other hand, if you are curious about the history of the lighthouse or you want to learn more about East End, then you will find the site interesting and informative. We... More

A small roadside park with several interesting historical markers about east end history. Worth an informative stop, but if you just want sights and not to learn anything you won't find much here. We did see a racer snake, a snake skin, and the skull of a waterbird. That entertained the kids more than the actual lighthouse. The actual lighthouse... More

True, not a whole lot to see, but the history is AMAZING. Worth the stop if you are visiting the East End.

My wife loves lighthouses and we never miss one if we're in the area. we got engaged at a lighthouse and married at a different one! This poor light is very neglected and in miserable shape. Only for the serious lighthouse fan.

We pulled over and hiked the great stone steps to see the old lighthouse. Not much of it left but there were some very informative plaques that told you the history of the area. Took us about 10 minutes to see all there was to see but at least I didn't have to wonder what was at the top of... More

We arrived at the east End Lighthouse park , which was the next stop on my version of the Maritime Heritage Trail, after visiting the nearby blowholes. I had visited the National Trust website and contacted them via email so I knew that the little park was accessed via the 37-step staircase just off the main road on the southeastern... More
