Free tours are offered (donations welcomed) from 4:30 - 7:30 pm on Sundays so we dropped by at around 5:30 pm and parked for free in the Nauset Light Beach parking lot. There is no other parking. A volunteer provided some history about Nauset Light (on the potato chip bag) and we climbed a spiral staircase to get to the... More

After vising the Cape Cod Chip Factory, we decided to visit this lighthouse. It was fairly easy to find but there was NO parking. We ended up pulling on the side of the road to take a picture and left.

Nauset light is a beautiful lighthouse that makes for a picturesque stop while taking in the entire experience of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Adjacent to beaches and fantastic walking trails this is an excellent starting point for a day of relaxed outdoor adventure. Parking can be found at the nearby beach across the street where you can leave your... More

Beautiful lighthouse seen at Nauset Light Beach. Very pretty and picturesque! We took many photos after visiting the beach that day.

I visited the Nauset Lighthouse this past Monday with 2 friends. Was so excited to finally get there. I have a portrait of in my home and have been dying to see it in person. My friends and I were staying in Truro for a couple of days and I convinced them to come see the lighthouse with me. When... More

I love lighthouses. Anywhere I go, I always manage to find a lighthouse. This year, I finally convinced the family to go for the lighthouse tour. It was free, but they do accept donations. I am not a fan of heights, so I have no idea why I like climbing lighthouses, but this one wasn't too tall. Nice views from... More

Anyone who's ever bought Cape Cod Potato Chips will recognize the light house, but it's the view from this point (or from the beach nearby) that's the real draw. When we arrived, there was a storm moving in from offshore, and we could see the sun to one side and the curtains of rain (and lightning) coming down from the... More

Pictured on every bag of Cape Cod chips, it's a beautiful light and definitely worth a stop. The beach parking lot is also right there, but if you tell the park ranger you're there just for the lighthouse, you can pull over to the side and park 10 min for free.

Went here an evening that the lighthouse was open for tours. Walked to the top and took a photo through a small rectangle in the floor which turned out great. The guide was very entertaining. We bought the video and small flashing lighthouse pin. The two other folks on the tour were from Philly (just like us) and had gotten... More

We drove along the coast until we got to the Nauset light. A very pretty area that was clean and well maintained. We did not go to the beach area but plan on doind that on our next visit!
