“Beautiful light house, after sandy wAlk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The lighthouse has some photos and information and is a good photo op, but the walk would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues.

“Picture Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We took a ride to the northern tip of Block Island to see this lighthouse. The walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse is free-form; you have to walk along the shoreline across whatever rocks, stones, and debris are there. Not very convenient.

We chose to admire the facility from afar. The Southeast Lighthouse is much more easily accessible and provides a dramatic view from its perch on the cliffs.

“Took Mopeds to Explore Northern Lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

The Northern Lighthouse is at the very northern tip of Block Island. On our last day we decided to rent mopends and explore the island. Our first stop was the Northern Lighthouse about 4 miles north of Old Harbor. We rode along the shoreline passing both Scotch Beach and Mansion Beach and then eventually passing Sachem Pond and the end of the road.

The North Lighthouse is a short 15-20 minute walk along the shoreline from the parking lot. The coastline here is not like the other beaches with courser sand and small rocks. Probably better to wear tevas or sneakers than flip flops. When we arrived, it was very foggy and it was hard to see the lighthouse but once we started getting closer the skies cleared.

Upon arriving at the lighthouse, we came across lots of seagulls and even a few babies.

Definitely worth checking out.

Stop by the lighthouse and take a tour of it. The history is amazing! The tour guides were very nice and knowledgeable. And you get a wonderful view from the top!

A fairly easy bike ride from town provided great views along the way. The walk to the lighthouse was nice.
