“It's really just a lighthouse”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Not a lot to see during the winter. It's a lighthouse on a hill. Nice to visit but not really a destination.

“Never Miss this Light”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

One of the best Lights on the Cape to see and photograph. Overlooking the entrance to Chatham Harbor, watch fishing boats and seals in the channel!

“DO NOT MISS”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Located in a beautiful spot....stop for a while and have a picnic lunch...views change constantly with the time of day and birds soaring above.....do not miss any of the other lighthouses while on this end of the cape.

“So beautiful at night”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We have strolled by this lighthouse a million times but it is so special on a foggy night to walk the beach and follow the lighthouse beacon. Bumping into night fisherman along the way. It is magical.

“Overlooks sandbar”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

The Chatham Lighthouse overlooks a sandbar surrounded by aqua and blue water. There is a 30 minute parking limit to view the sandbar. We tried a couple of times to get a spot but they were always filled. Then on a rainy day we found a spot and even with the mist and rain and lack of sunshine we were stunned at the beauty awaiting us over the wall. Absolutely breathtaking. Worth trying for a spot, don't give up.
