This lighthouse is not only at a breathtakingly beautiful location, but is a gorgeous design. It was saved from falling over the bluff in the 1990's, moved away from the edge. Preserved and still working, it's a brick construction with amazing wrought iron work inside....More

worth the visit, who doesn't love an old lighthouse? There's a fabulous view of the ocean of course, and ample parking. A must see for a visit to Block Island

This was closed when we came to the island (bummer!) but it has a great view. It was $10 to enter when open, which seemed high, but maybe if they are renovating it, it will be somewhere worth the money to tour.

Stopped here on a Bus tour. The lighthouse was closed on that Monday but the grounds and views of both the lighthouse and out over the beach were spactacular.

We didn't get to see the view everyone is talking about the day we visited. It was a really foggy day. We didn't see the food trucks either. You should take a trip around the island if you have a chance.

A beautiful spot to just relax and enjoy the spectacular views. They have a food truck that has a lobster grilled cheese that’s amazing! Enjoy it with a Dels lemon ice!

The Southeast lighthouse on block is another example of a beautiful New England lighthouse that has stood the test of sea and time. I have been photographing all Lighthouses in the northeast and this is a unique brick one with history.

I was amazed to learn the light house had been moved in recent times to the current location - what a feat! It is beautiful inside with stairs that wind up to the lights. The front area would be great for flying a kite. Off...More

From the website it looks like after Labor Day - open only weekends. Views from the area are still nice though! If you want to check - Call (401) 466-5009 for more information and to confirm hours.
