We had visited the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory and wanted to see the Lighthouse on the Bag--this is it! What a perfect way to see Cape Cod.

The first time we came here we decided to scope out the neighborhood near the lighthouse. We saw a fox on someone's lawn. The lawn was really wild grass and the fox seemed to be pouncing on something. Lunch? The lighthouse and the pine trees...More

This is the lighthouse appears on the package of Cape Cod potato chips. If you visit here and have extra time, the original Three Sister lighthouse is about 10 minutes walk away. During my visit (2019 labor day) there's volunteer-guided tour for both lighthouses. There...More

Your timing was good if you got to take tours of both lights at once. We will continue to have tours of Nauset Light on Sundays through the last Sunday in October. With the beach crowds gone, there's plenty of room in the parking lot...More

You can’t visit Cape Cod without photographing a light house. The one at Nauset was wonderful. Taking the photo just as the sun was setting was beautiful and true New England.

Picture perfect light house. Only open for tours on certain afternoons so check schedule if you want to go inside. Near the beach parking lot so easy to see. Beach there is great too.

The summer beach crowds are heading home so there's more room at the parking lot now. After Labor Day we will have tours of Nauset Light only on Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm until the end of October.

I recognize this light house, this is the light on the bag of Cape Cod potato chips. The beach is very nice too.

Twelve people are allowed on each tour which is about all the room at the top can comfortably handle. The circular climb is a little dizzying but not nearly as high as some lighthouses. The gentlemen at the top gave a great talk on the...More

We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Nauset Light. As you pointed out, only so many people can get up in the tower at a time but we work hard to keep the wait short on a busy day. We are offering tours on Sunday,...More

Bathrooms seemed to be port-a-potties in the parking lot and you have to travel down a fairly steep hill to get to the beach, which also means you have to climb back up when you leave. I had a hard time walking in the water...More

It sounds like this is a review of Nauset Light Beach. Please rate the beach on its Trip Advisor page and use this one for reviews of any experience with Nauset Light itself.

The lighthouse has a free tour and the guides are volunteers. They do ask for donations but aren’t required. Inside is a little small but the view is amazing. The guides are informative and really care for the lighthouse.

Right now the 1986 beacons are shut off. The N.L.P.S. is replacing worn out parts. We will have it up and running as soon as the work is completed.Normally Nauset Light is lit 24/7 year round.

Dogs are allowed on the site if they are controlled as the National Seashore requires. They are not allowed in the tower itself.
