It was really nice to learn the history of the lighthouse in this space. It was a nice place to spend a little bit of time.

We were so lucky to plan our trip on a day the lighthouse was open for tours. Docents were very knowledgeable and helpful. You can really see the locals are quite interested in preserving the history of the lighthouses. This one is very well-kept and easy to get to.

If you are lucky enough to arrive on a day this lighthouse is open for tours, take the time to listen to the stories before climbing the 44 steps

Not too often that you visit somewhere so well known. I took my bag of chips with me and enjoyed them sitting on a bench in front of the tower. Parking seemed to be only available at the beach lot that carries a fee depending on the time of year, or at the three sisters display followed by a bit of a walk in. Tours and so forth are limited so check their website in advance. Nice area.

We loved this lighthouse. The area is very scenic and you can walk right up to it and take some great photos. The neighboring beach was beautiful to walk along and we even saw a seal/sea lion (not sure which) swimming in the water! And better yet, if you come after 4pm during peak season you don’t have to pay for parking. Another added bonus is the three sisters lighthouses is a very short walk from this one which I hadn’t realized prior to our visit. Highly recommend stopping if you enjoy sightseeing different lighthouses.

Our favorite lighthouse to visit during our drive from Boston to Provincetown. There is a NPS stop on the way there so if you need to use the bathroom, definitely stop so you don’t have to back track. There was remodeling going on when we were there so there were no bathroom facilities. Looks like they will be open this summer. There was a lot of parking but this was also a weekday in March. I bet this place is packed during the summer. You can get all the way to the lighthouse which was wonderful. Lots of plaques to read about the history. Nice pathway to the beach. There is a separate pathway to the lighthouse from the parking lot through the woods or you can walk in the road. Definitely do the latter. When we got back to the car we found a tick on our dog which made us a bit paranoid about Lyme disease for us and necessitated a quick check of our skin. Fortunately there were none. Would definitely return. Enjoy.

The Nauset Light, featured on the bag of Cape Cod Kettle Chips, is a historical treasure. Though it was being restored when we were there, you could still see the lighthouse. It needed a lot of TLC, but it will be beautiful again once it's done. There is a path to the beach close by, which was fun, too.

Nauset Light was absolutely stunning. The path we took to access the lighthouse was from three sisters lighthouses, as that was the only parking spot available. The parking at Nauset Light is limited to around 20 or so spots due to bathhouse construction. The park rangers we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Pro tip, walk over to the grassy area overlooking the beach. It’s a cliff, so be careful, but the view is absolutely stunning.
