Very beautiful coastline- easy walk to lighthouse. Not a paved path but flat and semi-soft dirt. Closed M-F but can each to it in 10 min and walk around it. Wind is higher here than by shops.

Although it was raining, we drove from Edgartown to the lighthouse. We took some great photos with the ocean and the bluffs below us. This was the perfect New England lighthouse setting. Don’t miss it. Great scenic drive.

Beautiful area to walk to. Very close to town. There is a beach area surrounding the light house, and the views are spectacular! I did not go up the light house.

About a 15 minute walk from downtown Edgartown, the Edgartown lighthouse offers beautiful panoramic views of Lighthouse Beach and Edgartown Harbor. Lighthouse admission is $5 per person.

We love to take photos so we had several vantage points to get good photo ops! Very nice and colorful lighthouse. I recommend you walk down or walk to get the views! Lots of sailboats in the harbor today! Hot but great pics!
