Legendary Lighthouses on Nantucket

Nantucket is home to three amazing lighthouses, each with a distinctive look. They have provided protection to the island's waters for over a 100 years and they now provide a viewing-pleasure to all.

OFF-ROAD ECO TOUR

Rebuilt from fire and again after storm damage (originally built in 1784), Great Point Lighthouse stands proudly at the tip of the island. Our Concierges can arrange a guided eco-tour to explore the Great Wildlife Refuge.

YOUR OWN PRIVATE WORLD

The name Sankaty Head (1850) was derived from the language of the Wampanoag Indians, meaning highlands. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the moors and Atlantic Ocean.

SMALL BUT MIGHTY 

Brant Point Light (1746) is your official welcome to Nantucket. It is America's 2nd oldest and smallest lighthouse. Many families and brides and grooms pose in front of this memorable and iconic backdrop.
