If you’ve ever been down to south Florida, you have seen a lighthouse similar to this one. The parking is very limited, but, if you can find a spot, this park is worth a visit. Very beautiful, and the water was so clear.

The gravel parking lot is small, but if you’re lucky enough to find a space it is worth the stop. The views are spectacular of the harbor, unique 1895 lighthouse and Atlantic ocean. There is a small covered shelter, restrooms and benches on the grass....More

We lucked into a parking spot at the park and enjoyed a stroll around the light. There were fabulous views and many benches to just sit and reflect. The only downside is that I kept hearing a high pitched noise and I was wondering which...More

Nice view of the harbor. You can see the town from here. Good place to take photos or have a picnic. It can be windy.

Nice place to sit and watch the Yachts and boats got in to Marblehead or up to Salem. Benches to sit on if you want as well as an undercover area. Its a lovely drive from Marblehead over the Causeway to get there.

This park is a great destination for all. There are many benches for those who like to sit and watch the boats coming and going. Room to run around or climb on rocks for kids. Parking is somewhat limited.

Chandler Hovey Park provides a spectacular view of Marblehead Harbor, across to Salem and Beverly. Great spot to watch the sailboat races depart and return on Wednesday nights and Sundays. Best onshore fishing spot for stripers. Good free parking, as well.
