  • As a lighthouse buff, every lighthouse we are able to visit is a thrill. This one was no different. It is a long way off the beaten path but we made a special trip to get there. It's a pretty drive...

  • You can view the lighthouse from different locations around the island, from a short walking trails to a boat tour and even across the water from Chincoteague island.

  • The Assateague Lighthouse is a great place to visit. Rebuilt in the 1860's it is historic and well maintained. Plenty of parking and the short walk to the lighthouse isn't bad at all!
  • This historic lighthouse is a great place to visit. The hike up is fairly easy, however there is a steep hill which could be harder for some folks. As you approach from the trail, there is a moment when the lighthouse comes into view and it really is just perfect. There are plenty of photo opportunities around the lighthouse and there is a nice set of stationary binoculars to look through which provides a great opportunity to see the surrounding wildlife and area. It was definitely worth the stop and quick hike up to see this historic place.
