Light Houses of Rhode Island THE guide and gallery for the lighthouses of Rhode Island

North Light, Block Island

There are two “North Lights” in Rhodes Island.  This is the light on the north end of Block Island.  The other is Conanicut light, on the north end of Jamestown/Conanicut Island.  North Light BI is one of the more prominent lighthouses in RI.  It’s massive.  It takes a bit of effort to get here, you have to take a ferry out, then it’s a few miles north from the landing on roads and then another mile hike along a very rocky beach.  But it’s well worth the effort.  If you go in the water here, or even wad out along the spit on the north end, BE CAREFUL, the current here is amazing as the entire Long Island Sound dumps out across here.  The fishing is also pretty amazing here.

The purpose of Light Houses of Rhode Island is to help you find all 21 lighthouses in our state and take some great images of them. If you'd like to buy my images they're available in the gallery as well. Please check out each light's page to see directions on where to park and suggestions on shooting each light.
