Reviewed July 5, 2012

My goal is to travel to each and every lighthouse on the eastern seaboard. Nobska was a cool lighthouse-fantastic views and great photos from the top

“Absolutely breathtaking”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Absolutely beautiful lighthouse and view. Was excellent to see the sunset and be that close to coast. Not a common thing in MA.

“Watch the Sunset”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Although lighthouse is closed to the public except for a few advertisted dates each summer, you're allowed on the grounds and can sit on the steps or bench to watch the sunset over the ocean. Small parking area for 4 or 5 cars can be crowded at times. Fun spot for a family photo.

“nice stop on the way to Woods Hole”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We liked that it was easy to find, and that we could get near the lighthouse. We couldn't visit the lighthouse, but we heard that there are visits on Saturdays. Just went the wrong day! The grounds offer nice views over the water.
