I've never seen a view quite like this. A beautiful beach is across from the light house. You can use the viewers to see the seals for $0.25 :P

A nice place to walk to in the mornings , where you get to read about the history of the Pilgrims that arrived on the MayFlower in the 1620's . There is a beach across the Lighthouse , where there is beach yoga every morning. A most pleasant visit .

It was a bit of a disappointment because the lighthouse was inaccessible. It was also the shortest lighthouse that I have ever seen. It was a good, quick stop on our day of exploring !!!!

There is a beautiful view, but only 30 minute parking. The view is stunning, but the water is rough, and lots of shark warning signs. The day we went, it was very windy...

The Chatham Lighthouse is a must see for lighthouse lovers (or anyone). The scenery surrounding it is beautiful (beach is right across the street). Unfortunately, I did not get to tour inside the lighthouse b/c it's closed for tours on weekends. Parking is scarce. When u do get parking it's restricted to 30 minutes. If planning on visiting the beach... More

Beaches are wonderful & the light house is great at sunset - good photo op. Sand is clean and the water isn't too rough since it is off the Atlantic a bit.

I had been looking forward to heading up to the top of the lighthouse but it was closed when we got there! It is in a beautiful location, though. I just wish they were open more often. The beach down below is very nice and has some beautiful spots that I would have loved to see from the top of... More

Very pretty location! The lighthouse is nice and the beach is pretty to walk. I wouldn't say you need much time here to view the lighthouse unless you wanted to spend time at the beach.
