a landmark and must see!

Nice piece of history, great views and perfect proximity to Nauset Beach. Good way to spend part of your day, go early so you can hit the beach and get parking.

Great for pictures, swimming, long walks, and just good old relaxing. Light house looks like the ones in story books. Bring bug spray!

This is the lighthouse on the chips. Worth visiting just to say u saw it but there was no way to get in to the lighthouse so there was not much to see.

Wanted to see lighthouse and the nearby beach but no available parking without going to catch shuttle. Decided to look for Three Sisters Lighthouse. Found them, free parking which is a rarity on Cape Cod and a path to Nauset Lighthouse. About 10 minute hike and great photo opportunity. Then another 5 to 10 minutes and we were on the... More

This is in an area where it's very difficult to park your car unless you pay the high parking fee for the area. We were able to pull up to the lighthouse and snap a few photos.

This is just opposite the beach entrance , small line was there to reach to top. Good views from top of the beach area and worth for few mins after your beach time

As we arrived to see both beach and the lighthouse we were sorry to find that both areas had been closed and were only due to open the following day. I know we would have loved to visit the lighthouse but our timing was off, Check the dates and times for public access.

Was not at the top of my list, but had to stop on our way through for the teen. I guess if you are going to visit a light house and how can one not if they are visiting Cape Cod then it might as well be this one. We would have loved to visit the beach, but apparently one... More
