“Just a gorgeous spot of land jutting out from Watch Hill”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

There's not much to do here but sit on the rocks and fish. But the view is spectacular and I never tire of walking out there.

“Perfect Scenery”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Great ocean views from this point of land! Block Island, Long Island, Fisher's Island, Rhode Island and Connecticut shorelines! Lovely homes and gardens on the walk down too- You must walk unless you are handicapped or over 65, but it isn't too far. A small museum is open on Tuesdays and Thursday from 1-4 during the summer. You can also watch the surfers from here!

Loved the beautiful homes and gardens all along the scenic walk to the lighthouse. The ocean air was so refreshing and cool on a hot summer day.

“Feast for the senses and peace for your soul”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Classic New England lighthouse on a peninsula jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. Can't drive, have to walk. The sun, sea, gulls, wind and quiet will calm even the most harried.
