This was a bucket list lighthouse for me. The lighthouse itself is unique amongst lighthouses for it's size, shape and construction. Additionally, it's an engineering marvel in that they picked it up and moved it back 300 ft to save it from the eroding coastline. Nice museum, tour was better. Grounds were enjoyable to walk. An important part of the island visit.

We walked to the Southeast Lighthouse TWICE, once during the morning and once again in the late afternoon, and I'd recommend visiting it after 4:00 PM for that late afternoon glow. The late sun on the Lighthouse makes for a startling contrast to the neatly kept green lawn. Not far from the lighthouse are those stairs to the Mohegan bluffs. Make sure you visit them both.

had a very nice driver. a young man from Turkey who took us out on a full tour of the Island. Saw a lot of great places we have not see even after coming here for years. This lighthouse was moved back from the edge due to erosion but it is a well built building with a great view of the ocean below. truly a nice place to stop a small walk up a path to get to the edge where you will want to take pictures. The driver even took pictures of us together as he was a great guide. Thank a lot for that.

One of the most beautiful sites on the island! We went for a guided tour of the lighthouse and ended up being the only group on it, so it was nice to get a private tour. It was a short walk up to the top of the light, where we often stopped and heard of the history and architecture of the lighthouse. We got to step outside and see the view from the top of the light as well. A lovely short tour with the proceeds going to restore the rest of the house!

Under construction and view of water obstructed by fence for all but the tallest people. Can’t go in due to construction and COVID. Great walk out there but not much to see. Much better overlook just down the road. Not marked but is clearly a turn off and shirt walk on a worn path - then fabulous vistas.

This lighthouse is being converted to a B&B and I can see why! It's beautiful. It's one of the only, if not the only, Victorian style lighthouse. It sits at the top of the Mohegan Bluffs entrance. You can tour up into the light itself if you want. There's a small museum and gift store on the first floor. It's in a spectacular spot and well worth the trip.

This was a stop on my bike trip around the island. Lots of people on bikes, mopeds and morotcycles stopped by but the site wasn't crowded. The other visitors were having a blast posing on the rocks and taking pictures. There is a great view of the wind farm. (FYI, there are very clean port-a potties outside.) Very nice place to explore.

Situated on the Mohegan Bluffs the view is amazing. The lighthouse offers tours and we were able to go to the top of the lighthouse while learning the history of the lighthouse. It also has a museum and gift shop. Well worth a visit. Reasonably priced.

Right before you get to Mohegan Bluffs is the Southeast Lighthouse. There is a little parking lot and with a short walk you are at the base of the lighthouse.

You are able to walk on all sides of the lighthouse. You can also walk to edge of the cliff for a nice view.

It doesn't take a lot of time to visit, but it is definitely a nice thing to see.

We walked to the lighthouse from town which was somewhere between 2-3 miles. It was closed due to COVID, which we knew, but still wanted to see the pretty views. Would like to go back once construction is finished (we also went last year and they were closed due to construction, so third times a charm I hope).
