Lovely lighthouse across from the beach. Beautiful in Autumn when the crowds have died down. Nice walk from the town of Chatham.

This is one of the beautiful lighthouses I was able to visit during my Cape Cod vacation. I've attached photos.

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed in Cape Cod for one night before heading to Boston. Before heading to Boston we wanted to see the ocean, the beautiful waves and the fresh air that the East Coast has to offer. I looked at the map and randomly chose Chatham Light house, I'm glad I did! It's very clean, makes for a great walk along the water and sea shell picking. If you're in the area be sure to stop, you'll be happy you did.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Walk along the beach across from the lighthouse and you will find lots of goodies along the shore. We spent 2 hours picking up pretty rocks and scallop shells.

The seals were right across beach and sunbathing. Quite a few were close to the shore where we walked. They would poke their head out and look around. I wish we had binoculars!

“Wonderful views!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

When in Chatham, stop at the lighthouse and enjoy the views! Best to get there early because the parking area fills up quickly as people scan the ocean looking for the infamous Chatham sharks. There are coin-operated binoculars right there. The parking in front of the lighthouse is not for beach-goers --- the police will ticket anyone there for more than a short time. Be sure to stop for the view and the photo-ops!!
