“I only walked past it but”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

it is located close to town and across from a really pretty little beach. The fact that you can walk to it from town made it a nice surprise

“A lighthouse's lighthouse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

Beautiful setting on a bluff overlooking the ocean between Woods Hole, Falmouth shoreline, Martha's Vineyard, and the Elizabeth islands. Small parking lot where you can visit the lighthouse or walk across the street for an even better view. Very short drive from Woods Hole. Bring your camera and sketch book!

“Lighthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

We were only able to see the outside of the lighthouse, but the view across the ocean was amazing. Some very sweet and touching memorials across the road as well.

“The Lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

In order to reach the Nobska Lighthouse, you drive along these beautiful roads along the beach front. The little houses on the beach are fascinating as some of them are so little and stand on wooden supports above the water. In the distance you can hear the bells ringing from the bouys floating in the water. It's a very relaxing place to visit.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

Absolutely beautiful lighthouse and view of the coast. We stop here every year while on vacation and it never disappoints. Our boys have grown up seeing this place and always look forward to it. The parking lot is small and the road is winding so be careful of the other visitors and bikers in the area.
