Gorgeous spot! Early spring visit so nothing was in bloom, but still beautiful! Will have to go back in the summer time

We love visiting lighthouses and the Nobska Point Lighthouse is really quite lovely and is great for photographers. This lighthouse is not open to the public.

This is a cool little place with great views and some minor trails and rock climbing. It provides a nice break to enjoy some spectacular views. Parking is limited.

We loved seeing lighthouses while in Cape Cod and this one is a beauty. We also drove there to get a good view of Martha's Vineyard. The sight was breathtaking and worth the few minutes it took to get there. Well worth the drive.

Amazing views.. you can visit the lighthouse in any season. The lighthouse however isn't open to public but you can enjoy the picturesque sceneries.

Nicely located near Falmouth is this little and historic lighthouse, Great views to Marha´s Vineyard. Should you drive by anyway, have a short stop. It pays off.

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.
