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.

The lighthouse is pretty unique - brick structure that was moved away from an eroding cliff a couple of decades ago. The process of moving this large structure is outlined and amazing. The curator on premise knows his history and the history is fascinating. Admission is free unless you would like a tour and then it is $10 for the... More

We chose the South east lighthouse, because we were told that the North lighthouse was closed. The history narrated by the tour guide was excellent as well as the climb to the top...what a view. WE could see Montauk point and its lighthouse from the top.

Beautiful views surrounding this Lighthouse. It does cost money to go up into the lighthouse and there was a wedding ceremony there the day that we went so not the most ideal time. Grassy lawn is the perfect place to relax for a few minutes and hang out

Wonderful view from the top. Jim was our excellent guide who filled us in on the history. You could tell this light house is close to his heart. Work is ongoing in the living quarters which are not yet open to the public.

I've been to Block Island a number of times over the last couple of years, taking my boat down there with different groups of people. This was the first time we had time to rent bikes, and ride around the island. Our first stop was the Southeast Lighthouse -- a beautiful brick and stone lighthouse that was moved back from... More

Make a visit to this lighthouse a priority for your sightseeing on Block Island. It’s a beauty! It's one of the most attractive sights on the island. Bring your camera, binoculars, and sturdy lighthouse-climbing shoes. If you don’t have a car with you, rent a moped or take a taxi to see it. Walking or bicycling are not recommended due... More
