This lighthouse is located in an easy to get to location, making it a favorite for our family with young children. The kids love watching the ferries and boats go by and also running around on the lawn behind the lighthouse.

While the lighthouse was closed, it was still a wonderful visit to explore the beach and get some great pictures. The walk is easy and full of beautiful plants.

I took the 7 mile bike ride from Edgartown and needed a place to rest and this was the perfect stop off on my trek to Vineyard Haven. Several benches for resting and a beautiful place to take in the sunset

My daughter and I rented a two hour golf cart and explored the Oak Bluffs area. The lighthouse was a quick eight minute ride. Make sure you bring a map. Quiet little lighthouse.
