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.

I love lighthouses, and this is a great one. Right at Nauset Beach, with great views (obviously). Worth a visit.

We got there on a gorgeous Saturday & discovered everyone else had the same idea, parking was 15.00. As we weren't hitting the beach we decided to take our pics from the car. There really is no place to just park & walk up to see the lighthouse so we settled for snap & go..

This lighthouse is easily accessible so you can get some up close photos. It is close to the beach as well. The lighthouses along the coast really are charming, and all have their unique charm. This one reminded me of one that is on Nantucket Island- but that one wasn't as accessible, so that is definitely a plus for this... More

Stopped here while visiting Cape Cod. Very nice beach, with a little trail to the light house. Whole area is very picturesque. Seals will bob up out of the water near shore from time to time creating some nice picture opportunities. There is also a trail from Nauset Light to the 3 Sisters Lighthouses nearby (maybe a quarter mile away).... More

No walking needed if you don't feel like it. This lighthouse is easy to find off US Rte 6 and adjacent to Nauset Light Beach with ample parking and nice photo opportunities. If you walk to the front of the parking area you can take a great picture without the electrical lines. A local saw us and told us that... More
