Terrific lighthouse

Great lighthouse, cliffs are eroding so it's a long drop to the shore. Good parking and walking area.

This beautiful, iconic lighthouse, seen on every bag of Cape Cod chips, is made even more dramatic by it's placement on top of a hill above the cliffs over the sea. But it isn't open very often, so you take your photo and move on.

This iconic lighthouse it the one you see on every bag of Cape Cod Chips. There isn't much to see here, especially if you visit when the lighthouse is closed (which is most of the time in the off season). However, it's a neat little lighthouse and it was fun to learn about it being moved due to the disappearing... More

So beautiful to see Nauset Light. Amazing how far in they had to move it do to erosion. Beautiful at night!

It is one of the lighthouses where they would allow you to walk up.. The Lighthouse as described has been moved physically from its original spot .. its a beautiful... More

Very nice lighthouse off Nauset Beach. The only way to avoid payong for beach parking is to get one of two spots by the three sisters lighthouses and walkong over. Tour times are very limited.

If you come anytime Nauset Light is opened for a tour, just tell the ranger in the booth and the parking is free. After Labor Day, the crowds are gone and parking is free. The lighthouse will be open from 1:00 to 4:00 every Sunday through October. More

Many great lighthouses on Cape Cod - this one is in a great setting and well worth a visit - combine with a day at Nauset Light Beach.

This beauty has withstood everything Mother Nature has brought her way. Truly a beacon of hope, strength and determination as she watches over the Atlantic Ocean. And, so very pretty during the Christmas season when she is decorated with a wreath!

We visited the Light House because of the curiosity of my 4 year old son. I'm not sure why but I couldn't get enough. On Tuesdays & Wednesday I believe you can get a guided tour. It's a small tour and not long but it's interesting and the view from the top is worth it. This light house has a... More
