Staying in the Lagoon area of Oak Bluffs, the bike trip from our cottage to the Lighthouse and then into downtown Oak Bluffs was about a 2.5 - 3 mile ride which was fairly easy going (though a bit of uphill riding). After leaving the main road and heading toward East Chop, the road opened up to beautiful views of... More

Short, picturesque bike ride along the ocean from Oak Bluffs to East Chop lighthouse. Fabulous ocean views and beautiful architecture.

Whether walking on East Chop or driving by, there is a wonderful lookout point at the East Chop lighthouse . It is a treat to see such a traditional New England lighthouse -- but the view of the Sound is also wonderful- Definitely worth the stop!

Since I love to walk, I decided to follow the road out of Oak Bluffs ..what a beautiful walk along the water with some pretty impressive houses along the way...The lighthouse itself is picturesque and the view is gorgeous. I sat on one of the benches for a while and just enjoyed the peace and quiet and the view...it was... More

We walked from Oak Bluffs and though we went the wrong way, when we rounded a corner and there it was! Wish we had been there when it was open, but still worth the walk (a mile or so...)

Great light house in an area within walking distance of circuit avenue. If you walk there you can check out some gorgeous houses and enjoy the great view of cape cod from the road. The light house is rather small but has an amazing view and its a great spot for a photo stop! Definitely recommend it

The East Chop Light House in a lovely place to ride your bike to. Stop and have a seat, enjoy the scenery and take some photos! The lighthouse isn't open every day for tourists to go to the top, so check the schedule if you want to go up top, BUT you can always enjoy the view from outside the... More

Just a perfect location for wedding photos. I've heard many people also get married here - I can see why since the setting is spectacular.
