Nice piece of history, great views and perfect proximity to Nauset Beach. Good way to spend part of your day, go early so you can hit the beach and get parking.

Great for pictures, swimming, long walks, and just good old relaxing. Light house looks like the ones in story books. Bring bug spray!

This is the lighthouse on the chips. Worth visiting just to say u saw it but there was no way to get in to the lighthouse so there was not much to see.

This is in an area where it's very difficult to park your car unless you pay the high parking fee for the area. We were able to pull up to the lighthouse and snap a few photos.

This is just opposite the beach entrance , small line was there to reach to top. Good views from top of the beach area and worth for few mins after your beach time

Right now the 1986 beacons are shut off. The N.L.P.S. is replacing worn out parts. We will have it up and running as soon as the work is completed.Normally Nauset Light is lit 24/7 year round.
