It's a lighthouse. We missed the tour of the inside by a few weeks (too late in the season). Still fun to see and walk around. (Also a short walk to the Three Sisters.)

The lighthouse is not large but in a nice setting and pretty. I didn't try to go inside, spent more time at the beach area near it. There is a walking path by it and it is nice looking. You can see it from the road to Nauset beach or park in the beach parking lot and walk around it... More

This vacation is one of my favorites. If you hit it right at low tide its beautiful. But the water is normally cold. Also the rocks at the edge of the water hurt your feet when you go in And when you get out if you fall boy does it hurt. But when you go on a beautiful day you... More

The lighthouse is in a beautiful area and is well worth the drive even if you don't go inside - we didn't due to lack of time. Be sure to see the Three Sisters lights nearby.

The lighthouse is small but very interesting. Donations were asked for at the lighthouse to go inside and up the stairs, but it wasn't necessary. We donated $10 and got a free video of the history and saving the lighthouse. Well worth the trip, video and experience. While there, don't forget to use the path to see The Three Sisters... More

This charming light house is very well preserved. And it's located in a very nice area, just across the cute Cable Station House (French Cable Hut, built in 1891 by the French Cable Company) and Nauset beach. All them deserve a quick look.

It is beautiful to look at but I don't believe you can go inside. Easy access and close to the beach.

The lighthouse and adjacent beach are located a short distance from Hwy 6 and have ample parking available. While not open, the parking lot did have a booth at the entrance, so assume they charge during the summer, but in October it is free. Lighthouse is a short walk from the parking lot and is accessible to walk around, but... More

Great to see the lighthouse that I've always seen in photos. The history and it's value for seafaring people was interesting.
