We took a side trip to this light house from the Shining sea bike trail, which is about one mile away. The ground is open to public. There is also a rocky beach across the road, which provides nice ocean view.

Fantastic view of The Vineyard and part of Woods Hole. Take a bike ride up to the light house. It’s just off the Shining Sea Bike trail. Parking is difficult if you drive a car.

If you like lighthouses and are in Cape Cod, this one is a must see. Even if you just take a selfie outside.

The lighthouse sits many feet above sea level, but parking is close by, so no strenuous walk to get close. When we visited today there was at least 6 people painting it. It has a very interesting story behind it.

Definitely worth seeing. The view was one of the best we've seen in that area. Make sure you go across the street to see the view from the cliffs.

Driving along a long and windy road with the ocean by your side you come upon this picture perfect view of a lighthouse and house in the background. Beautiful place to stop and enjoy the view of the ocean and the lighthouse.

Historic, beautiful, outstanding view, must see if you’re in Falmouth for more than a few days. Only accessible by car unless you’re fit (steep hills to lighthouse)
