Great place for a family photograph. The lighthouse is open and charges $5 admission but I didn't see the point of paying for experience.

Great photo opportunity and amazing views. It is across the island so we went straight there and worked our way back to Oak Bluffs marina.

Enjoy the scenery. The lighthouse tour seems a little expensive and the shops at the base are nondescript at best.

Lighthouses - you've seen plenty of them. This one is OK. Skip it. Take the path to the beach. Walk up the beach to the Aquinnah Clay Cliffs. NOW you're on to something beautiful, unique and memorable.

Great place for views, young children will definitely enjoy the novelty of seeing the actual light inside the lighthouse. $5 for adults, kids under 12 free, good deal!
