Nice location of the lighthouse with old keeper house as well. The beach is very nice as well. Unfortunately there is no specific hike available.

We love visiting lighthouses and the Nobska Point Lighthouse is really quite lovely and is great for photographers. This lighthouse is not open to the public.

This is a cool little place with great views and some minor trails and rock climbing. It provides a nice break to enjoy some spectacular views. Parking is limited.

We loved seeing lighthouses while in Cape Cod and this one is a beauty. We also drove there to get a good view of Martha's Vineyard. The sight was breathtaking and worth the few minutes it took to get there. Well worth the drive.

Nicely located near Falmouth is this little and historic lighthouse, Great views to Marha´s Vineyard. Should you drive by anyway, have a short stop. It pays off.
