Nicely located in a lovely port and park, at the end of the main street of Edgartown. Nice for a short walk.

This is a very short walk and a very nice spot to visit. Very nice. Some people even do YOGA on the beach in front of it.

We took the earliest ferry from Hyannis to Oak Bluff at Martha’s Vineyard and arrived at about 10.20 am. The journey is smooth and the ride is less than an hour. We walked to the bus stop and took the bus 13 to Edgartown with a day pass at $8. Edgartown is the loveliest of the three town with all... More

You cannot beat the views from the top of the lighthouse - well worth the $5 donation and the climb!

My family and I were able to visit the Edgartown Lighthouse. The views were fantastic and the lighthouse attendant was very helpful and knowledgeable.

We were on a tour of Martha's Vineyard with Martha's Vineyard Private Tours & Exursions. Our driver, Jim, made sure we had great vantage points for photos of every lighthouse!

If you like lighthouses, and you like nature walks, this is the place for you. We walked down form our hotel and the views were spectacular. So many nice shells too!

You can walk up halfway and then climb a ladder to get to the crow's nest. The view is good but the authenticity is best. This was exactly how the lighthouse keeper accessed the top 100 years ago, except for the part about paying the five dollars. NOT recommended for people who aren't well-coordinated and agile.

It's a walk from downtown area but a very pleasant one. And this was one of the nicest lighthouses on the island.
