Great location and easy to reach from downtown. The lighthouse is well maintained and allows you great views of the boat traffic in and out of the harbor. Certainly worth the visit.

We enjoyed our walk from town down to the Brant point lighthouse. The caretakers had just finished put a huge red bow on the lighthouse for the Christmas holidays. Very charming little lighthouse. We wished we could have gone inside.

My husband and I were married here at sunset, and it was perfect! We were fortunate to have perfect weather, and a beautiful sunset!

The lighthouse is a short drive from the center of Nantucket. You could walk to it, as well. Parking is definitely a problem, as the streets that are nearby all have NO PARKING signs. But, once you get to where the lighthouse is located, you walk down one of several sandy paths to get to the lighthouse. It's not huge.... More

This is a small lighthouse put the first to see what you sale in Nantucket Harbor. It is a wonderful place to walk out to, sit on the beach and look at the harbor, watch the boats and watch the people. Great photo ops.

Brant point is well known and is the 1st light house you see when you arrive by Ferry. I have seen many pictures of it but seeing it in person is amazing.

A short walk from town and you felt you were in another world. Would have liked to have more onsite information.

We got to climb to the top (27 feet) and see the interior on Saturday, 9/20 during the Maritime Festival. Brant Point Lighthouse is open once a year during this festival in September. Don't miss this opportunity if you happen to be in Nantucket during the festival weekend.
