Beautiful Scenic Spot

Even though we couldn't walk around the actual lighthouse the drive to this area and the surrounding park and cliffs are simply beautiful. We didn't plan to spend long here - just... read more

Just before you reach the lighthouse was a little dirt road that led to a parking lot and some type of seating area. A seawall stretched out from the shore. Might be the only place to get an unobstructed view of the scenic lighthouse. Arrived at 6:00 AM today to photograph the sunrise behind the lighthouse, only to find the... More

A great place to relax, watch surfers, enjoy the 360 degree view! Get take-out from Iggy's or Aunt Carrie's as you go here, and enjoy your food at the end of Rhode Island, just across from Block Island :)

This open air terrace or pleasant dining room serves tasty food with a salt air flair. Parking is limited but a short walk will find you there.

You can see it from the north or south, but the Coast Guard has limited access to the lighthouse itself.

Even though we couldn't walk around the actual lighthouse the drive to this area and the surrounding park and cliffs are simply beautiful. We didn't plan to spend long here - just snapped some pictures and enjoyed the views for a while, but it would be a lovely picnic spot if the weather was warm enough.

I love lighthouses, and 30 years ago I visited Pt Judith as one of my pilgrimage spots. What a difference 30 years make, especially as those thirty years included 9/11. Thus, there were large security fences and other impediments to being able to have a closeup look at this venerable light. Some views from adjacent beaches were found, but even... More

We stopped by this scenic view on a beautiful afternoon. The laid back area was a pleasure to visit.

I have been going to Point Judith Lighthouse for about 25 or so years. I love the ocean views. This last time I went my husband, my mother and I got locked in. The coast guard station on site locked their huge metal gate. If it wasn't for some other site seers in their car we wouldn't have been able... More

Great place to visit, unfortunately it's pretty much on lockdown, due to homeland security. Great views and a pretty park to sit and watch the waves crashing in.
