The walk there is the best part! It's beautiful, very scenic. The lighthouse looks beautiful in the distance. You get there and a woman is behind a rope asking for $5 for the preservation society in order to climb the stairs. It ruins the moment. Thought - perhaps getting peoples money while they are walking there would feel better to... 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.

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.
