We packed a very large basket of sandwiches, salads and drinks and headed out to the Beavertail Light and Park. it is a great place to picnic and on this particular evening was breezy and offered one of the most beautiful sunsets.

Came at like 9:30 on a weekday and this worked out pretty nicely beause it meant we got to wander around before the tour buses got there. It was a nice little trip,pretty views, cute lighthouse. The lighthouse museum was surprisingly engaging and I actually really enjoyed it. There were lots of little exhibits and the stories were fun. They... More

Beautiful lighthouse with lots of rocks to climb on. Always windy. Have been there 100 times and never been disappointed.

Very nice lighthouse with many good photo ops. There is also a very nice little museum on site. I would recommend this as a side trip instead of Judith point light

A family favorite, ocean around the rocks the reason for the lighthouse. Great meeting spot for dinner on the ground. If you want alone time it is always a good spot too. Dog friendly, kite friendly, hike friendly. BRING your camera!

Great place to read and relax without beach sand. Bathrooms are on property. Loved sitting out on the rocks listening to waves.

Even when the lighthouse isn't open, the view from here cannot be beat. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the sound of the ocean against the rocks. Sturdy shoes will allow you to explore those rocks and get closer to the water.

Pack some food and drinks and park near the cliffs along the ocean where you can climb the rocks or simply sit and watch the waves crash against them. Perfect place for a picnic, sun bathing or just relaxing as you watch (and listen to) the waves roll in.

A lush yet windswept outpost with panoramic views. Clambering on the rocks is lots of fun, and so is finding a comfortable spot and watching the waves crash and recede.
