Idyllic Location!

A beautiful spot and perfect for some awesome pictures. Nobska Lighthouse does have occasional tours (we missed it as it was the previous day). Awesome views of Vineyard Sound!

While driving along the shore, you will come upon the Nobska Pt. Lighthouse. Parking is very limited, so depending upon the time of the year, you may not be able to park right at this attraction. This is old Cape Cod. Scenic views of an old light house with all of its history and gorgeous views of the water and... More

It is a lovely coastal drive and stopping at the lighthouse to look at the view made a good stop off.

This is a beautiful side trip. There are several benches to sit on and take in the views from the Point. The lighthouse has tours, unfortunately it was not open when I arrived but it was still worth a stop.

NIce lighthouse, glad I had the opportunity to visit. Which the tours were available more often or the site had more to offer. Great views of the ocean, nice place to have a picnic if the weather permits.

Pretty and historic landmark. Limited parking which was OK out of season. Not well signed so get a tourist map. Drive on to other places after.

Worth a brief stop if you want some pretty views. Walk across the street and you can walk down the hills for a short bit for a great ocean view.

We walked to Nobska Lighthouse from Woods Hole what a beautiful walk along the coast and up to the Lighthouse. Stunning views at the top unfortunately it was closed for the tour as we visited out of season.

That morning we took a ferry from Falmouth to Martha's Vineyard and we could barely see this lighthouse on the shore. That afternoon we drove along the coast line until we found it. It was worth the drive.

Easy trip from Falmouth. When we arrived volunteers from lighthouse historical society gave us tour inside (built in 1600's) and history of the structure. Awesome views from top too. Cool to see beacon light/learn how it was built. Highly recommended!

Thank gloriarose9
