This lighthouse is not accessible by public. That is disappointing as the design of this particular lighthouse seems bit different from the rest. The beach nearby doesn't have sand, it's marshy and some sort of weeds are washed ashore. This is not a must do...More

We were there on vacation and went to eat at the Lobster Shack and view the lighthouses and experience the solar eclipse! Best day at the edge of the world! The whole area is breathtaking and every bit worth the drive to the Park!

This is a beautiful lighthouse but the neighborhood around it is privately owned. Tourist need to park at the parking lot down by the coast guard station and the beach by the lobster shack. You can not enter into the lighthouse, you can't even drive...More

0 Votes No the lighthouse is closed. You cannot go in. However it is a beautiful area. Great for a picnic or just to spread a blanket & relax
