Point Judith Lighthouse is just hanging out at the beach. I am not a picnic type of person, but this is the type of place. I just park the car and look at the ocean. When I get ready, a couple of my favorite options: Aunt Carrie's or Chaplin's.

Point Judith is a beautiful location on the Atlantic Ocean. The neighbor hood and houses near the light house is very lovely. There are many exellent restaurants including The Break and Geoge's of Gallilee, Aunt Carries.

Gorgeous with a wide vantage of RI coastline from Sachuest Point and Newport to the north to Block Island & the new wind farm to the south. Great spot for a picnic or to watch surfers too.

Just before you reach the lighthouse was a little dirt road that led to a parking lot and some type of seating area. A seawall stretched out from the shore. Might be the only place to get an unobstructed view of the scenic lighthouse. Arrived at 6:00 AM today to photograph the sunrise behind the lighthouse, only to find the... More

A great place to relax, watch surfers, enjoy the 360 degree view! Get take-out from Iggy's or Aunt Carrie's as you go here, and enjoy your food at the end of Rhode Island, just across from Block Island :)

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
