My husband and I love lighthouses, so whenever we have a chance to get a peek of a lighthouse, we do it. Not sure about the parking, but we parked down by the 3 sisters lighthouse and you only have 30 minute parking. we had to be fast at the lighthouse and take our pictures fast. next time this August,...

If you are going to the beach for the day in Nauset then you can add the lighthouse with great ease to the day. Later in the day the beach parking fills and then there is no where to stop to see the lighthouse! The very nice traffic attendant/officer did allow us to double park for ten minutes to snap...

The Nauset light is a short drive from the Salt Pond Visitor Center. We parked across the street (was off season so we did not have to pay to park) and walked up to it. There are a couple of plaques that explain the significance of the windmill, it's age etc. To my knowledge you can not actually go inside... More

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
