Big waves, Great facilities. This would nto be a good beach for little kids though. Surf is too lively.

“Interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The beach at Nauset Light was very nice. We went there daily to watch the harbor seals offshore looking back at us as if they were watching us. It cost $15 to park there, but if you are a senior citizen you can purchase a Senior park pass...$10 and good for life..check it out.

“Painted Inside and Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Nauset Light's interior was painted last year and the painters will finish the outside next week when the weather improves. Cape Cod Potato Chips is supporting the paint job.The light never looked prettier.

The Sunday tours are from 4:30 to 7:30 pm now so that there is no fee to park. In July and August there will be Wednesday tours at the same. The stairs at the beach were carried away in the blizzard when there was more than 10 feet of the cliff eroded. New stairs are being built for beach access in June.

“Wrong time to visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We visited a week ago and the lighthouse was being painted, but at the old paint scrubbed off stage and therefore not worth photographing. Very disappointing, although guessing that it will be a temporary phase and improving soon.
The Three Sisters, just up the road, are definitely worth a visit.

“Pretty lighthouse, nice ocean view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

This was a nice quick stop on the way to see the rest of the cape -- the famous lighthouse on the Cape Cod Chips bag. Very short walk from the parking lot to where the light house has been moved to. You can use your cell phone to hear an informative narration about the attraction. Also park here & walk about 1/3 of a mile up a residential road to see the remainder of the Three Sisters Lighthouses.
