Stumbled upon this lighthouse after a day at Jetties Beach and was pleasantly surprised by the scenic beauty typifying East Coast charm. Something about how the sun paints the sky with magifinicent oranges and reds coupled with a vintage lighthouse makes this attraction a true gem. So if you're in the neighborhood and looking for a sunset stroll, definitely stop by the Brant Point lighthouse for a great photo-op with a loved one.

Rode our bikes here, walked on the beach, took photos of this very picturesque lighthouse. It's a lovely setting with lots of boats going by.

We always go here every year, early morning walk and at the end of the day, this is the first cute beautiful lighthouse you'll notice when you are entering the harbour of Nantucket and when you're leaving, prepare pennies to throw in front of the Brant point with a wish to comeback soon...

It is easy to walk out to the lighthouse at Brant Point which is the short one you pass when you enter the harbor by boat. Quite a few people like to fish off this area as well. The lighthouse is easy to find. This is a popular spot to take photos of the lighthouse. The sun sets on the opposite side of the island though but you can get some colorful cloud shots.

This is a nice place to go for either a short or long walk or just hang out watching the ferries. Be prepared in case it rains. It's not stroller or wheelchair friendly however. It's a pretty point to take photos also.
