Nauset Light early at sunrise.

Nauset Light

Nauset Light has stood proudly since 1877, witnessing centuries of maritime history along the Atlantic coast. Originally located in Chatham, it was moved to Eastham in 1923 due to erosion concerns. The lighthouse served as a vital navigational aid, guiding ships safely through the treacherous waters around the Cape. Its distinctive white and red stripes make it easily recognizable, even from a distance.

Fun Fact: The iconic red, white and black Nauset Light is the same lighthouse that adorns countless bags of Cape Cod Potato Chips — and some Massachusetts license plates.
