lighthouse with beautiful sea view

Great place to visit and view some of the history of the area. Smell the sea, explore landmarks and view nature at its best.

Highly recommended if you like lighthouses! It's beauty is uncanny. We enjoy going lighthouse hunting and today was the first day since having surgery I could venture out! Out of all the lighthouses we saw today this one was my favorite! I could have just sat and watched this light for hours and really study the architecture. Highly recommended!!

Nice view, great lighthouse and the beaches are so clean. The public restrooms are also clean. There is lots of parking.

A visit to Nauset Lighthouse is always a treat, no matter the time of year or time of day, no matter the weather. Whether it's for a day time swim, or walk on the beach, or just to check and see how the waves are rolling in, it's great for the kids. It's quite a hike back up the stairs... More

This one was hard to get to as the parking lot to the beach was full. My husband dropped us girls off and we ran up to the lighthouse and took pictures. The girls learned it is the lighthouse on the potato chip bag. We then hopped back in the car. A short ways down the road, we pulled over... More

There are so many lighthouses in New England to go see. This one is a must! Nice area to drive by the light and take pics and pull off to go to the beach.

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

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
