Breath taking views of vineyard sound and martha's vineyard. A great place to just sit and 'rest" and just soak in the view. A few minutes walk (or bike) from woods hole center.

Lighthouses are a fascinating part of history, and this one was fun to see, although we weren't able to go inside. It provided the culmination of a nice drive on a beautiful day in Cape Cod.

My husband and I and 2 children stopped to see this lighthouse on our drive into Woods Hole. It's a pretty little spot with a scenic overlook of the ocean and Martha's Vineyard, especially if you walk across the street. It's just a lighthouse to walk up to so it's about a 5 minute stop max if you include crossing the street.

Standing on a bluff overlooking Vineyard sound, the views from the lighthouse and Nobska Point provide a panorama of Martha's Vineyard, Woods Hole, and theElizabeth Islands. The steady stream of boat traffic and the ocean breezes are wonderful to experience. In the evening, the flash from four additional light houses and the buoys and the steamship authority ferries proved a light display that is ever changing and beautiful.

Nobska Light is basically a post card. The lighthouse and grounds are excellent as are the views of Martha's Vineyard. Parking will be difficult during the busy summer months but well worth at least a drive by between Woods Hole and Falmouth. The Falmouth Road Race passes the lighthouse as well.
