“Not to be missed view from the Watch Hill Lighthouse”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Just a short walk from the Ocean House (or Watch Hill Carousel), past amazing ocean front "cottages" you will find the Watch Hill Lighthouse. Windy to be sure, this spot offers beautiful views and little ones will love running around and watching seagulls nearby.

“Breathtaking views at lighthouse point.”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

The walk down to the point where the lighthouse is located is on a narrow winding PRIVATE road between summer "cottages" of the rich - fun to look at. There is pretty much no parking in the area. Once out at the point, definitely worth the stroll. Apparently the lighthouse was open for tours in the past, but when we were there (June 2012), it was gated behind chain link, with a sign "NO TRESPASSING PRIVATE PROPERTY". Kind of disappointing. You can also see the lighthouse from East Beach (again - nowhere to park) or from Napatree Point.

it is a beautiful lighthouse if you like lighthouses. This one, however, looks better from the sound.
