Basic lighthouse, but worth a look

Easy to find. Grounds are lovely with amazing views of the harbor! Lighthouse is in beautiful condition. Disappointing that you can't go up into any of the lighthouses

Nice Lighthouse. Easy access. We hunt out lighthouses and this was one we found on Martha's Vineyard

What a beautiful hilltop view. Get out of the car and touch the lighthouse. East Chop has many wonderful cottages. Enjoyed it

I rented a bicycle and biked up here. I'm a novice bike rider but I would also say I'm in pretty good shape. I'm not sure how little kids would handle the hill up there. Once at the lighthouse it was quite beautiful scenery and nice place for a photo op. I do wish they would plant some trees there... More

This was cool because I was allowed to go up into the lighthouse and check it out. It's a bit small up there bit well worth the climb. I guess I showed up at the right time because I heard they don't let folks up there often.

No matter what the weather is like, there is always a great view from East Chop! Watching the ferries or the many sailboats is very relaxing.

Nice to enjoy the views and see the outside of the lighthouse this time of year. East Chop is a great biking road away from traffic and closed to vehicles due to repair right now so bicyclists have it alone right now.

The road it's located on is one way during season so it's really nice to walk or bike on. It's a traditional NE Lighthouse set up a bit from the ocean. There is no romantic oceanside setting among rocks or anything but fun to visit. The homes in the area add to the experience and it's a must see if... More

A must see for the tourist. A beautiful sight and easy to get to. While there, it's fun to drive around the area to see the scenery and beautiful homes on the water.
