I am a lighthouse buff and so I go to all them when in the area of one. Sits out on the beach in front of the Harbor View Hotel across the water from Chappy. Owned by a non-profit foundation so they asked for a $5 donation to up to the top. Not a tall lighthouse but worth the $5... More

A walk out from the center of Edgartown down to the lighthouse is one of my favorite things to do on the Vineyard. If you can get there for sunrise you will be in for a treat. Have Sunday brunch at The Harborview and enjoy a short walk to the Lighthouse afterwards.

Being opposite our hotel not very far to walk, very peaceful surroundings and beautiful views. Good for a few camera shots.

A lighthouse is a lighthouse to me but the walk around it and along the beach was pretty. Good views of Nantucket . The old whalers houses are fun to look at. worth a look

Gorgeous views at the top! Especially if you sneak outside! There is a fee to go up and there is a ladder to climb so you must be willing to climb up and down it.

One of our favorite walks. A beautiful spot. Great shells. Wildlife abounds. You can see the boats and Chappy. A very quiet beach walk.

When visiting Martha's Vineyard Island, make sure to walk down the path in Edgartown to the lighthouse overlooking the harbor and Chappaquidick Island. The beautiful setting and the views are spectacular even on a cloudy and cool day This is one of my favorite spots in Edgartown. Sometimes it's open to walk up the stairways and out to the top....

I love lighthouses, but this lighthouse in Edgartown was a must see as it's in our favorite movie, Sabrina, with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond, so when my friend and I exited the ferry and walked to the local bus, I knew where my destination was going to end. After walking off the small town of Edgartown and having lunch... More

The Edgartown Lighthouse is a very pretty lighthouse. It is great to walk inside it. Also, the walk down there and the beach around it is gorgeous. You get a great view of the town of Edgartown. I would definitely take the walk up Water Street to go to the lighthouse.
