I wanted my children to see the top of an actual working light so we paid the small fee for the tour. It was just long enough and the view from the top was wonderful! I would definitely recommend if you have the time.

A beautiful old lighthouse well documented. Great views of the shore and ocean, saw a large pod of common porpoises leaping and splashing near shore. Nice gift shop.

It's a beautiful lighthouse but at least when we were there, there was no interior access. However, it's a beautiful spot from which to view the bluffs and worth visiting if you are on Block Island. In the summer there was a little dairy bar...More

It’s past prime season so the lighthouse has reduced hours for going inside but you can still walk around the outside and they provide Porto potties until it gets too cold. Great location to view the wind farm.

worth the visit, who doesn't love an old lighthouse? There's a fabulous view of the ocean of course, and ample parking. A must see for a visit to Block Island

This was closed when we came to the island (bummer!) but it has a great view. It was $10 to enter when open, which seemed high, but maybe if they are renovating it, it will be somewhere worth the money to tour.

Stopped here on a Bus tour. The lighthouse was closed on that Monday but the grounds and views of both the lighthouse and out over the beach were spactacular.

We didn't get to see the view everyone is talking about the day we visited. It was a really foggy day. We didn't see the food trucks either. You should take a trip around the island if you have a chance.

From the website it looks like after Labor Day - open only weekends. Views from the area are still nice though! If you want to check - Call (401) 466-5009 for more information and to confirm hours.
