While not as picturesque as the Southeast Light on the opposite end of the island, this lighthouse is worth visiting for its dramatic location alone — standing guard over a rocky beach at the far northern point of Block Island. The blocky granite building was built in 1867, and is accessible via a half-mile walk along the shoreline. The first floor contains a small museum showcasing both tragic shipwrecks and heroic rescues that have taken place here over the years.
