“Liked it so much we got married there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

East Chop Lighthouse is your quintessential lighthouse - on a cliff with an incredible view. A scenic walk from Oak Bluffs with beautiful houses and views along the way. They have tours on Sunday nights and do allow private wedding ceremonies (not receptions) on the balcony - that is where we got married 18 years ago. Nice area for resting, picnics and quiet solitude.

“fantastic position to view the area, closed to tours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

we walked there along fairly quiet roads, and went into the gate. there an area to have a picnic, and the light house at sunset is a good photo.

“15 minutes walk from the bus stop.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Be ready to walk from the bus stop (bus #13). This is not a fancy, tall lighthouse. But I like seeing lighthouses, and this adds to those I've been and seen.:-)
