There is not much to do at this site but the views of the water and Martha's Vineyard are spectacular! The lighthouse itself is a working lighthouse and it is well maintained and is simply beautiful. It's also a great place to watch the Falmouth Road Race every year in August.

There's not a whole lot to see here. We parked, walked up the walk and around the lighthouse. You can enjoy the view, but you can't go inside.

I loved this little spot. It was so beautiful because your view was amazing. Right across you can see where Martha's vineyard was.

The lighthouse is set on a point with amazing views great for taking pictures of the lighthouse or views over the water. The ride to the lighthouse includes some of the best beach scenes toucan imagine. Parking is limited but the turnover is fast.

Location and view were great! There were nothing else to stay there for more than 10 min. Anyway, you can take a bunch of awesome pictures there.

Parking for maybe six cars and no other parking nearby. It's on a very narrow road along a beautiful beach that's a tease since it's only for people that live in the area. 10 minutes is enough time to visit but the water view is a better photo op than the lighthouse itself.

The view of the water and across to Martha's Vineyard is amazing. Don't miss it. The parking is a nightmare with very few spots. We read about the parking and decided to walk from the town. Big mistake! It was a very long and dangerous walk along a windy road. We were exhausted when we arrived and called a cab... More

Visited early in the morning. I have been by here each year while visiting the Cape. It is a beautiful stretch of road. Stopped by the lighthouse to take some pictures of it and the beautiful views out over to Martha's Vineyard. Tiny parking lot. Cross the road from the parking lot there is a bench to sit on and...
