Fodor's Review

Brought here in 1928 after two horrible shipwrecks on the point, the lighthouse, which originally stood in Mayo Beach on Cape Cod from 1881 to 1922, still has its original light keeper's quarters from the late 1800s. Gray whales pass this point during their migration from November through April, so bring your binoculars. Visiting hours coincide with morning and afternoon check-in and checkout times at the adjoining youth hostel.
