Great views

There are only a few parking places so arrive well before sunset for the best photos but the views are worth the hassle.

We live in the area and still, Nobska is special! The view driving to and from Is beautiful. Drive the whole way along the water from behind Falmouth's Main Street to the sweet Village of Woods Hole. You will find Nobska about half way and many other photo ops as well. The drive is only about 15 minutes but you... More

We were taking a day to drive to the tip of Cape Cod and picked out a few lighthouses to visit. This was the first one. It was a sunny day with clear view. Definitely worth the time to stop! Parking can be a little challenging...

We got several really nice photos of the lighthouse as we were on the ferry with our car headed to Martha's Vineyard. Be sure to have your camera ready and have the zoom lenses on if you have one. It goes by very quickly.

I loved it when my family stopped here for a visit. The best lighthouse I have ever visited ever. Great place for taking selfies if you are a selfie person. Loved it!

Views are spectacular, you can watch the Vineyard ferries come and go. Lighthouse history is wonderful to learn. Keep driving along the coast for beautiful views of the ocean

When in the area, take the drive down to Woods Hole to see the lighthouse. You can also get a boat to Martha's Vineyard nearby.

A beautiful elevated vantage point with vies of Martha's Vineyard and the sound. Take a breath and take in the beautiful view. Benches are located o the bluff across the road, with a marker offering a touching remembrance of a family members killed in the 911 attack. We road here while biking the Shining Seas bike path, but limited auto... More

My wife and I went out of our way to go here and were pretty disappointed with the lighthouse. Maybe we built it up too much in our heads. Anyways, one could definitely find better things to do.
