There is a path off the parking lot of the Castle Hill Inn. You can walk down the path to the lighthouse. It is an awesome spot to watch the boats on the bay.

If your looking for a spectacular Sunset, visit Castle Hill Lighthouse, sit on the lawn enjoying a drink and watching the sun go down with the Newport Bridge in the background.

We bike to Castle Hill everytime we visit Newport which is about once a month. The aderondack chairs overlooking a beautiful scene of the ocean, the Newport bridge, numerous types of boats and Jamestown is breathtaking. Once you find your perfect chair, a server politely asks if you want anything to eat or drink. We usually get glasses of wine or champagne and leisurely sip as we watch the boats and listen to the waves crashing against the rocks.

This is one of the must-visit places in Newport, while touring Ocean Drive. From the hotel, there is a path toward the lighthouse that's easy traveling. Although we've been here at least 20 times, it never gets tired. This time the ocean waves were pounding against the cliffs so you could hardly hear your mate talk. So primal and lovely. Don't miss it!

Castle Hill Lighthouse in not easy to find. It is off Ocean Drive near Castle Hill Inn. The lighthouse is a short walk down a path from inn's parking lot (easier to do if your are staying at the inn). The lighthouse is small and you can't get inside, but the views are fantastic and it would be a great place to watch the sunset.
