We wanted to see a light house up close and this one had great reviews. Light house was a nice, easy little walk from parking lot and it was beautiful. Well worth it.

Something about this lighthouse just makes it standout a bit more than some of the others. You can get up and close to it with no problem and sometimes they have 'tours' that allow you up into it. Definitely stop by if you're visiting the Cape.

Nauset Lighthouse is my favorite, probably due to the red color and the beach there (Nauset Light Beach, Eastham). Of course, it's been moved back from the edge of the dunes and the history of it is interesting. You'll need to visit to hear that, from the docent. The view from the top of beautiful. We were fortunate enough to... More

Great beach with wonderful waves to jump it. Kind of expensive on the weekends during the season ($15.00) for admission/parking. The restaurant could use some competition also.

Wonderful place to see the sights. You can walk just off the parking lot and get a wonderful dunes beach view too.

The visitor center told us this lighthouse was the only one you can drive to and they weren't kidding. So take the time to come to this one. If you can walk, it is just a hop, skip, and jump to the three sisters lighthouses. We loved this entire Park. We are from Wyoming and we are so thankful to... More

I guess I had high expectations and was disappointed when I saw the lighthouse perched up on a hill that was far away from the actual beach...

The volunteer guide provided lots of information on the effects of erosion over the years, showing us photos & maps of former locations of the lighthouses. He led us from the beach to the 3 lighthouses; we were able to climb to the top of one of them. Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth the time.

Nauset Light offers an opportunity to stop by at a wonderful beach area on the Cape Cod National Seashore and view the expanse of the sand dunes and beaches forever on the Outer Cape. This is a National Park Service facility that is well attended by staff but is a bit off the beaten track. Look for the signs to... More
