Great beach and easy short walk to the Lighthouse. Listed as two separate places but they are both in the same place. There is a charge but not expensive for what you are getting. Our visit was in the off season so it was free.

Wish they would have let us walk up in the lighthouse, but you could not. Still a great spot to visit. Walked over to it from Coast Guard Beach. It was a nice mile and a half or two mile hike. We were able to see several Gray Seals bob up and down in the water.

I can walk to this beautiful lighthouse and the beach from my home. It is spectacular - just you and the dunes once you park and walk for about 5-10 minutes. A great place to clear your head and relax.

Really lovely beach. Really pretty at night and a large expanse of beach. It does have quite a long flight of stairs to get down to the beach but has showers and changing rooms. The light house is really nice too and has daily tours of the three sisters and local maritime history. It also is 20.00 a day parking... More

My husband, daughter and dog visited on a beautiful June day. We were very happy to have a place to take our dog for the day and enjoyed the beach and the water.

One of my favorite places in the world. I love it during the changing seasons and in the summer. I don't want to give away my secret but wait in the line to experience this beach! Walk down past the crowds for a special experience.

We have visited Nauset Lighthouse many times over the past 40 years. It has always been worth taking a few snapshots regardless of the time of year or the weather. On a few summer weekends, there are also a few opportunities to climb the stairs to the top.

Nothing to dislike - these lighthouses on the Cape are still working and if you have children it is a great educational opportunity

When you see all the lighthouses in Cape Cod, this doesn't really stand out, Good for photos opportunities. Convenient parking.

We saw many many lighthouses on our recent trip to New England. The Nauset Light is absolutely one of the two most beautiful. It is an absolute MUST DO! The area surrounding is equally as beautiful. We were not able to go inside but it was so worth the trip to see it from the outside.
