Great place to visit, unfortunately it's pretty much on lockdown, due to homeland security. Great views and a pretty park to sit and watch the waves crashing in.

Thank to the family who allows us all to visit this beautiful location in memory of his mom. There are benches to relax on and a memorial that supports the visiting nurses.

We drove down to Point Judith Lighthouse in hopes of going in, but when we got there, the gates were locked and apparently it is manned by the coast guard and homeland security measures keep visitors out. The website indicated that it was accessible, but...More

Place is an active site for homeland security so you have to view it through a chain link fence. It is still worthwhile. Beach close by is very nice. Plenty of parking.

This is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the ocean view. Sometimes there are surfers to entertain you.

I gave it this rating because you can't even get near the lighthouse, it was all behind a wire fenced in area!

Beautiful location with great views! Not for those who want a lighthouse tour but great place to bring your clamcakes or doughboys and watch the waves. Usually no big crowds or kids running around just scenic and relaxing!

While we saw several lighthouses on our New England tour, this was one we could not get close to - for a good photo. The nearby parking area, though, affords some cliff views. Toward the landward side upon leaving the lighthouse, there is a dirt...More
