This open air terrace or pleasant dining room serves tasty food with a salt air flair. Parking is limited but a short walk will find you there.

You can see it from the north or south, but the Coast Guard has limited access to the lighthouse itself.

Even though we couldn't walk around the actual lighthouse the drive to this area and the surrounding park and cliffs are simply beautiful. We didn't plan to spend long here - just snapped some pictures and enjoyed the views for a while, but it would be a lovely picnic spot if the weather was warm enough.

I love lighthouses, and 30 years ago I visited Pt Judith as one of my pilgrimage spots. What a difference 30 years make, especially as those thirty years included 9/11. Thus, there were large security fences and other impediments to being able to have a closeup look at this venerable light. Some views from adjacent beaches were found, but even... More

I have been going to Point Judith Lighthouse for about 25 or so years. I love the ocean views. This last time I went my husband, my mother and I got locked in. The coast guard station on site locked their huge metal gate. If it wasn't for some other site seers in their car we wouldn't have been able... More

Great place to visit, unfortunately it's pretty much on lockdown, due to homeland security. Great views and a pretty park to sit and watch the waves crashing in.

Thank to the family who allows us all to visit this beautiful location in memory of his mom. There are benches to relax on and a memorial that supports the visiting nurses.

We drove down to Point Judith Lighthouse in hopes of going in, but when we got there, the gates were locked and apparently it is manned by the coast guard and homeland security measures keep visitors out. The website indicated that it was accessible, but it certainly wasn't the day were there. Still if is a pretty site.

Place is an active site for homeland security so you have to view it through a chain link fence. It is still worthwhile. Beach close by is very nice. Plenty of parking.
