I've never seen another lighthouse quite like this one. While it's an amazing sight to behold, the most interesting parts are the view from cliffs and learning about the history of the light and the erosion of the bluffs. Check for hours, it's more interesting when there is someone to talk to in the gift shop.

Great view, not much to do there. Views from atop the cliffs. The place was in the midst of construction while we visited.

How many sailors buffeted by violent Atlantic storms silently thanked their maker when they saw the Southeast Lighthouse's fresnel lens refracting the light into the frigid ocean gloam? It's a beautiful lighthouse. Red brick solid, graceful in a chunky stolid way. Around 1994 or so, I and my family watched it jacked up on to rails and millimeter by millimeter... More

We took a short walk to the lighthouse and were totally amazed of the beauty of this lighthouse. Standing near the Mohegan Bluffs gives this lighthouse a serene atmosphere. this is a must take when on Block Island.

We saw this lightouse from a distance - in the pictures it looks like it is a short walk, but it is quite a walk though the sand - it is ork the walk, but allow time, or you can go as far as you want to get a good picture.

We were married here 4 years ago! It is such a beautiful, tranquil spot. The lighthouse has a neat history and is gorgeous. The views from up top are spectacular. Take the tour inside (few dollars) - it is worth it!

this lighthouse is an architectural gem, and at some point, it should absolutely be refurbished. The lighthouse building is absolutely beautiful. There are four chimneys, and a peak inside indicates tiny fireplace and alot of neglect. There is no question this place suffers from our country's lack of need for lighthouse attendance. But this unique structure, built almost like a... More

Captivating view of Long Island from this lighthouse, and the open sea! Visited by school group on most days during the school year.

We hiked to the Southeast Lighthouse via the interior portion of the Island and then along the Mohegan Bluffs. There was a small food truck at the lighthouse, which offered a fun frozen lemonade that was perfect after a couple hours of hiking in the sun.
