Big waves, Great facilities. This would nto be a good beach for little kids though. Surf is too lively.

“Interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The beach at Nauset Light was very nice. We went there daily to watch the harbor seals offshore looking back at us as if they were watching us. It cost $15 to park there, but if you are a senior citizen you can purchase a Senior park pass...$10 and good for life..check it out.

“Wrong time to visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We visited a week ago and the lighthouse was being painted, but at the old paint scrubbed off stage and therefore not worth photographing. Very disappointing, although guessing that it will be a temporary phase and improving soon.
The Three Sisters, just up the road, are definitely worth a visit.

“Pretty lighthouse, nice ocean view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

This was a nice quick stop on the way to see the rest of the cape -- the famous lighthouse on the Cape Cod Chips bag. Very short walk from the parking lot to where the light house has been moved to. You can use your cell phone to hear an informative narration about the attraction. Also park here & walk about 1/3 of a mile up a residential road to see the remainder of the Three Sisters Lighthouses.

“The lighthouse from the Cape Cod chips bag!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Certainly worth the stop. We visited in the off season so there were barely any people around. It was quiet and picturesque.

If you have ever seen the Cape Cod potato chips this is the lighthouse from the picture on the bag.

There is a trail you can take (through some woods then along a street then through woods again) that brings you to the Three Sisters Lighthouses. They aren't impressive or anything as far as Cape Cod lighthouses go but still worth checking out for their history. It's maybe 3/4 mile walk one way.

The ocean views are very impressive, but recent (I'm guessing) storm damage has made access to the beach impossible. There is a good 20 foot drop to get to the sand.
