A beautiful spot and perfect for some awesome pictures. Nobska Lighthouse does have occasional tours (we missed it as it was the previous day). Awesome views of Vineyard Sound!

This is a beautiful side trip. There are several benches to sit on and take in the views from the Point. The lighthouse has tours, unfortunately it was not open when I arrived but it was still worth a stop.

NIce lighthouse, glad I had the opportunity to visit. Which the tours were available more often or the site had more to offer. Great views of the ocean, nice place to have a picnic if the weather permits.

Pretty and historic landmark. Limited parking which was OK out of season. Not well signed so get a tourist map. Drive on to other places after.

We walked to Nobska Lighthouse from Woods Hole what a beautiful walk along the coast and up to the Lighthouse. Stunning views at the top unfortunately it was closed for the tour as we visited out of season.
