“Nobska lighthouse protecting Vineyard Sound”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

From the mainland as you view Martha's Vineyard across the water you can enjoy an endearing lighthouse on the hill to feel part of Wood's Hole. It's a bit romantic for couples and there is some parking if you travel by car.

“Nice view, nice lighthouse.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

With little parking and almost no access to the interior of the lighthouse, this is not a lighthouse I'd travel some distance to see, but if you're already in Woods Hole, it's worth a look. View of the Vineyard.

“not very exciting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

On the ocean drive to Woods Hole, we stopped here - the view from here was beautiful but the lighthouse itself not very exciting.

“the best view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

it's a great lighthouse with a few parking spaces. not open that much, but the rocks nearby, the fog horn and the water gushing in or out of Buzzards Bay (through woods HOLE) make it entertaining and very peaceful.

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Very nice view, and we saw many wedding photos being taken here. Very limited parking, and watch for bikes!
