Our innkeeper suggested we stop by Castle Hill Inn to watch the sunset. We didn't know there was a lighthouse until the doorman asked us if we had seen it yet. I'm so glad he pointed it out to us. I took some beautiful pictures of the lighthouse while the sun was setting.

The views are beautiful and we enjoyed looking around - it is a must see if you are in the area - won't take long to see, but you could spend time enjoying the waves.

Great place for a glass of wine at end of day while watching sunset and sailboats in the harbor. Sitting on lawn chair was very restfull.

Best View of the Newport Harbor and Bridge. Grab a drink at the bar and head down to an Adirondack Chair and sink in the best view of Newport.

Enjoyed a romantic dinner at the Inn and pre-dinner drinks at the bar while watching the sun set. Magical night!

What a beautiful setting to have a drink and watch the sun go down! The Inn provides adirondack chairs, at no charge, and no purchase necessary.

Ok to stop by on nature walk if you are visiting Castle Hill Inn but I wouldn't make a special trip just to see the lighthouse.

Take a stroll up to the Castle Hill Lighthouse at sunset. The views are spectacular. It's a wonderful spot to sit and take it all in!
