We parked in Edgartown and strolled around the shops in beautiful weather. As we walked out to the lighthouse, we enjoyed looking at the lovely homes, which once belonged to whaler captains. The ocean was calm, and the view delightful.

We like to hit the volleyball around (no net) and go for a swim when we go to the beach... The sand is loaded with sharp shells, so we had to wear shoes. The wind came up, too, which isn't perfect for a beach visit....More

Such a pleasant place to visit, sit and relax. The beach here is definitely calmer than South Beach with none of the undertow, so it is perfect for children.

Beautiful and very calm beach nestled among the beautiful houses in Edgartown. Difficult to decide whether to look at the ocean or the houses. Water was freezing.

Great location for a day at the beach with family and kids. Wonderful view. Great for a picnic. No waves. Not good for older kids.

Wide and long beach just walk over from the lighthouse. The quality of the sand is not great, and water is cold most of the year, but it's a nice place to lay under the sun and enjoy some drinks with the friends.

We didn't make it time for the lighthouse tour, but honestly we didn't need it. We had a great time walking the grounds and enjoying the view. We were able to see whales from the scenic lookout point and that was so cool. Definitely a...More

Lighthouse Beach is a great place to take a stroll along a beautiful beach any time of the year. During fishing season, there is the potential to catch just about anything here as the channel into Edgartown Harbor is just off this beach. Stripers, blues,...More

This is a great beach in Edgartown at the entrance of the Harbor. It's a cool spot and the lighthouse tour is fun. My daughter got married at the base of the lighthouse so it has to be a five!!!

Parking for Lighthouse Beach is tricky. Very few spots in Edgartown, and no real public parking except for the small lot down by the Town Dock. My suggestion is to just keep driving up and down the streets near the... More
