East Chop Light is so pretty! It is a true New England lighthouse and a must see if you come to the Vineyard. Gorgeous views so bring your camera to take lots of pics!

It is a quiet and reserved place located in a beautiful neighborhood. The lighthouse is located on a spot where you won't be able to admire the sunset, but the walk back to OB is definitely the best part of your visit!

Quiet, excellent view. Worth the $ to climb up it. My favorite houses in the island surround it. Near where JAWS was filmed.

Stills works. Its blinks green. Has a ton of historical significance. The view of the harbor is wonderful. Stop by, go thru the turnstile and enjoy.

Great experience, views, and when open, a nice history lesson. Go anytime to sit on the benches and see the ocen views to the north. When open, climb up to the top for a great view...chip in a few $$ to help keep it in good repair. Easy walk from Oak Bluffs harbor (20-30 minutes one way)

East Chop Lighthouse is your quintessential lighthouse - on a cliff with an incredible view. A scenic walk from Oak Bluffs with beautiful houses and views along the way. They have tours on Sunday nights and do allow private wedding ceremonies (not receptions) on the balcony - that is where we got married 18 years ago. Nice area for resting,... More

we walked there along fairly quiet roads, and went into the gate. there an area to have a picnic, and the light house at sunset is a good photo.

Be ready to walk from the bus stop (bus #13). This is not a fancy, tall lighthouse. But I like seeing lighthouses, and this adds to those I've been and seen.:-)
