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

Southeast Light

Southeast light is the second light on Block Island.  It’s another very prominent light.  It sits high atop the bluff on the South East end of the island.  They’ve had to move it back in recent years as the bluff is eroding.   It’s also not an easy light to get to, you have to take the Block Island Ferry out, then it’s a few miles south from the landing.  You can walk, bike or take a cab.  Once there it’s just a short distance off the road.  While there though I highly recommend the walk down to the water.  It’s a LONG flight of stairs though, so pace yourself as you need to come back up at the end.

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.
