Explore: Edgartown Lighthouse

My first day on Martha's Vineyard was a whirlwind! Between 12pm - 8pm we did Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, Edgartown and several bus trips back and forth. Our final stop on day one was the Edgartown Lighthouse

Edgartown Lighthouse

The original lighthouse was built in 1828, but was destroyed in a hurricane in 1938. Determined to replace it, Egdartown had the cast iron lighthouse in Ipswich, MA (called Essex Light) dismantled and brought to the island by barge. 

The lighthouse sits on the edge of the Edgartown Harbor and overlooks Chappaquiddick.

We arrived around 5:30pm and were excited to explore. There is a path right off North Water Street that leads straight to the beach. 

Naturally I had to stop every few feet to take more photos. I could make my very own lighthouse flip book!

From mid-June to early-September the lighthouse is open to visitors, all seven days of the week from 10am - 4pm. We arrived about 90 minutes too late.

We quickly learned that the lighthouse (and the beach) is a very popular photo shoot spot. We saw a Vineyard Vines-clad family with a photographer, a newly engaged couple with two camera people and a group of 10 high school girls snapping up a storm. 

When in Rome, right?

As the sun began to dip we walked back up to North Water Street to watch the rest of the sunset from the porch of the Harbor View Hotel

Their porch is lined with teal rocking chairs. We popped inside to order two glasses of rosé, which they give to you in plastic cups to take outside. For those on a budget, be aware, one glass of wine costs $16 dollars. I had a bit of sticker shock!

Wine in hand, we toasted to the most glorious first day on the island.
