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 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.

I loved it when my family stopped here for a visit. The best lighthouse I have ever visited ever. Great place for taking selfies if you are a selfie person. Loved it!

Views are spectacular, you can watch the Vineyard ferries come and go. Lighthouse history is wonderful to learn. Keep driving along the coast for beautiful views of the ocean
