chatham lighthouse tours - cancelled until further notice photoFor more than two centuries, mariners have relied on beacons from Chatham to safely navigate the treacherous waters around the 'elbow' of Cape Cod.

Chatham Light, as you see it today, is one of two lighthouse towers that stood here in the mid-1800s. In 1923, the second tower was dismantled and transported up the coast to Eastham, where it became 'Nauset Lighthouse'

Chatham Lighthouse is perhaps the most often-photographed of all Cape Cod lighthouses, and one of the most popular for visitors thanks to its beautiful setting overlooking Lighthouse Beach, one of the most spectacular beaches in Chatham.


Located on the grounds of Coast Guard Station Chatham, Chatham Light has a long and rich history and is available to tour during select months. You may also read the complete history of Chatham Light by clicking on the link below
