Wood End Lighthouse is view-able from Commercial street or can be reached by walking the breakwater . Get the US Lights app for directions and history.

We got the grand idea to walk the breakwater, then head to Long Point, and then to Wood End. And that was before we climbed Pilgrim Monument. After such an arduous trek, you can only imagine my glee that neither of these lighthouses are open...More

This is a wonderful walk-hike to the light house. It takes about 45 minutes walking the break-water and then 30 minutes to get to the light house and the beach. Wonderful trip and beautiful views.

Wood End and Long Point Lighthouses are accessible via Provincetown's Breakwater Rock Passage, which is a sometimes treacherous path over huge, uneven boulders. The path is over a mile long, and it took us about an hour to reach land. The rocks are solidly in...More

Easiest to get to, compared to walk back from long point. The hike across the jetty is about 1 1/2 miles each way. Jetty is uneven, kids walk portions of it, some do more - I think its too difficult for kids the whole way

The causeway is a bit of a trek, but it is beautiful and secluded. We climbed up into the lighthouse. Make sure you have good shoes and wear sunscreen.

Lighthouse closed but the hike to it across the breakwater is worth it anyway. (Unless your main desire is to go inside a light house of course). My son and I had a great afternoon. The breakwater is 1.5 miles each way and it's another...More
