It is a pretty light-house, but I was there when it was closed. So sorry about the 3. It does look worth a closer look.

All of the light houses on Cape Cod have closed for the year. Please come back next year when we're open from May through October for a tour of the tower.

Sorry you couldn't get inside to check out the view from the Watch Room. Come back when we're open for tours. None of the lighthouses on Cape Cod are open this time of year because we don't get many visitors willing to brave the colder...More

Nauset Light is located right across the street from the National Seashore entrance to Nauset Light Beach, and it is worth a stop to check out. There are free tours available, but you'll need to check the schedule on their website. Even without a tour,...More

Like the colours of the lighthouse. The beach below is beautiful to walk. You could see 20-30 seals out in the water. The lighthouse was closed to walking up when I was here.

Sorry you couldn't come by for a tour. We will start up our open houses next May. We have added a couple of signs that explain the light's history for visitors that can't make it down when the light is open.

Sorry you were unable to make our Full Moon Tour or one of our Sunday tours in October. We are finishing up our tour seaso as temperatures drop and the winds pick up. Please come back next year for a look inside the light.

The red and white lighthouse is picturesque. The parking lot has an easy walkway to the beach, our dog Maggie had no problems walking up from the beach. Seals were feeding in the surf. Well worth the short drive off of Route 6.

I love being near water. Lighthouse is a plus. My first visit I saw seals in water, so I pretty much fall in love right away. Beach is clean with very little rocks. Look at calendar online so you can go when there is a...More

Went with our two kids (this was their chosen activity) - easy walk to the top. Guides at top and bottom very informative about the history and the impact of erosion on the site. Fantastic views from an iconic landmark.

One of several Cape Cod beaches my wife and I continue to visit. Enjoyed watching the seals perform. LOL- It's been a few years since our last visit. It's sad how the dunes are vanishing. Thanks for the memories.

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.
