This lighthouse is kept in excellent shape. We didn't have time to see about touring it. There were only about 4 parking spaces so we just took pictures and moved on.

We visited the Nobska Lighthouse during a recent visit to the Cape. It was very hard to find, as there are little to no signs directing one to the site. But once we found it, it was worth the drive. It's very charming and reading about the history on a historic marker was interesting. The surrounding ocean area was very scenic and we took a lot of great pictures. I would have loved to go in the lighthouse, but there were no tours offered. Don't miss this if you are in Falmouth. (Get clear directions, though!)

The history of this lighthouse is very educational. Down side is that the lighthouse is on a curve on a narrow road, and it is challenging to pull back out of the parking lot.

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

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!
