We could have gone it, but didn't. It's a very well maintained and picturesque sight. It was part of our tour.

A short walk from the road takes you down a trail to the lighthouse. You also get good views of the piers and waterfront homes from the lighthouse. The lighthouse was closed and there was no informational sign outside the lighthouse to explain its history....More

I love this location. It is a great walk around the beach and it offers really great views of Edgartown from the lighthouse. Also, there is a great gift shop inside of the lighthouse at the base.

You owe it to yourself to take the 5-10 minute walk down North Water Street from the center of Edgartown to the Edgartown Lighthouse. This lighthouse marks the harbor’s entrance between Martha’s Vineyard and Chappaquiddick. A sand path leads from the paved road to the...More

We strolled along the shore to the light and found it very relaxing. Not sure about parking because it was included in our hotel and we were able to walk over.

This is a public beach and it is a great venue for a beach wedding. Beautiful path to the lighthouse beach, flat terrain, gorgeous views. The lighthouse is a bonus for photos.

Go take a walk out to this historic landmark right on the edge of the Edgartown Harbor. Look back at beauty of Edgartown or vastness on the inlet.

We snapped some lovely photos of the Edgartown Lighthouse - beautiful, quaint town & lovely area to visit. The lighthouse appeared deserted when we visited - would have liked to visit the top.

Hi. Is the Edgartown Lighthouse reachable by the VTA bus ? If not, how many blocks or minute-walk would that be from the bus stop. We're going there this Labor Day weekend. Thank you so much.

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
