We love to stop at this lighthouse to view and also to watch sunsets. It's so lovely in all seasons. It also has a beautiful memorial across the street overlooking the ocean of a life loss on Sept 11th that is very moving. The beach close by is small but lovely as well especially at sunset and to watch ferries... More

Although not open to the public, there is a plaque giving the story of the lighthouse in a small parking area in front of the lighthouse. The views from that area are beautiful.

This is an old lighthouse, that has been relocated over the years. Great view of the coast and the surrounding area.

I stopped to see this local attraction while traveling on a business trip. Very easy to access! The beach is right across the street but you can't access it from the lighthouse. The view is very picturesque.

Loved the view from this lighthouse and across the street at the overlook an interesting gravesite. Makes me wish I knew this woman who died. She was obviously very much loved.

There are only a few parking places so arrive well before sunset for the best photos but the views are worth the hassle.

We live in the area and still, Nobska is special! The view driving to and from Is beautiful. Drive the whole way along the water from behind Falmouth's Main Street to the sweet Village of Woods Hole. You will find Nobska about half way and many other photo ops as well. The drive is only about 15 minutes but you... More

We were taking a day to drive to the tip of Cape Cod and picked out a few lighthouses to visit. This was the first one. It was a sunny day with clear view. Definitely worth the time to stop! Parking can be a little challenging...

We got several really nice photos of the lighthouse as we were on the ferry with our car headed to Martha's Vineyard. Be sure to have your camera ready and have the zoom lenses on if you have one. It goes by very quickly.
