Fun visit if you love lighthouses. It was about a 200 years hike down a dirt trail to get there. It is open and you can go to the top.

We climbed to the top for a beautiful view of Edgartown and the surrounding water. Gorgeous lighthouse to look at and admire. Worth a visit.

We always come back to this place, but every year it has become mure difficult to find a parking spot. The available spaces are limited for two hrs. Which are not reasonable if you plan to spend some time at the beach. So be prepared

Love this light house! Nice walk where wild flowers grow along the path. This light house is a memorial to children who have passed away. If you want to go to the top of the light house there is a fee.

Don’t come just for the lighthouse. The area and views near the lighthouse deserve some time. The homes around here are immaculate and maintain their flowers like you would not believe. We saw some of the largest roses I have ever seen.

Not a far walk at all. I'm in my 70's and had no problem. Easy walk and lovely homes with great architecture. Enjoy!

Brooke, Do you mean the Harborview Hotel that is located across from the Edgartown LIghthouse? It depends where you take the ferry to—closest would be Oak Bluffs rather than Vineyard Haven. From there you can grab a MV bus... More
