REVIEWS OF Castle Hill Lighthouse IN Rhode Island

Scott Moore

It was cool. Don't drive up to the restaurant if you are just going to the lighthouse. There is a parking lot at the bottom and a short path to walk up to the lighthouse.

This place was just amazing, I didn’t stay at the hotel but I checked the facilities and walked around the area and it was just breathtaking, I couldn’t get enough of it also amazing place to walk around and to take pictures, with amazing scenery to the sea.

Colleen Ann

Stunning view! Get a drink on the lawn and enjoy the view from the Adirondack chairs.

Debi P

A short walk from Castle Hill Inn for some scenic pictures.

Sanghee Lee

(Translated by Google) Castle Hill Inn Lighthouse to see and do. It is not a big scale, but it feels very intimate with the feeling of being cute. I was sad because I was too windy and could not take a more active look. (Original) Castle Hill Inn 구경도 할겸 둘러본 등대. 커다란 규모는 아니지만 아기자기한 느낌에 무척 친근한 느낌. 바람이 너무 많이 불어서 좀더 적극적으로 둘러보지 못해서 안타까웠음.

What a lovely time, sitting in chairs on the lawn watching boats coming in and out of Narragansett Bay

The Castle Hill Light is a Newport Icon. A great place to watch the sunset. You can park at the Castle Hill Inn and take the short trail to the Light.

Steve Powell

This is a pretty cool spot on the Bay. It would have been even cooler if you could go inside. There are a maze of trails to this spot from the parking area nearby for all of the fishermen trying to catch dinner. The views of the Bay and the boat traffic is very cool.

Colin Patterson

Can't beat the view....very relaxing, great service!


Best place view for couples to see and people who want to be alone here as well.

Great place to see. Great picnic spot! You don’t have to go to the inn to get to this light house. If you park at the grass parking lot (on the right) just before the Inn. There is a trail right across from the parking lot that leads to the trail.

James Andrew Peters

2nd best sunset on Narragansett Bay

Best place for Sunday brunch and water view.

No indication, but once found, nice view. To help you, when you see the parking on your right, you have to follow the path you see on the picture below, it's a 2 minutes walk to the ocean and you'll find the lighthouse.

Ken Ross

I love the view there

Mel Gonzaga

Gr8 place.

Jonathan Kamens

Thomas K

On private property of some resort, technically I was not supposed to go there. I did anyway, I love lighthouses.

Arundeep Mittra

Another excellent spot to visit. Don't go up to the hotel, instead find the parking areas right as you enter. A few feet from there is a trail that brings you to the light house. Beautiful photo opportunity. You can walk to the right of the lighthouse and go closer to the the water and spend serene time on the rocks

Mei Su

Nice place for party

Castle Hill lighthouse is the shining gem of the entrance to Narragansett Bay's East Passage.

Vadim Loban

Awesome sunset spot

AE Conn

A beautiful location with historic lighthouse, but it should be restored and reopened to the public.

Jessica Huey

Wanted to get married here but unfortunately EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!! Still beautiful!

Joe Gandia

We had a terrible time trying to find this place to then get there and be confused on whether or not we can enter the grounds or not. We could not get close to the lighthouse. All of the, Do Not trespass signs around did not give us an asurance that we could enter and so we turned around and walked away. it was anti-climatic to say the least.

Bonnie Adler

Linda Borden

Incredible !!!!!

Needs better signs to point you in the right direction but a nice short walk with some very nice views.

Great spot for photography, esp if you're in to lighthouses and popular w/ the fisherman. The views of the bay w/ sail & motor boats and the sunsets are second to none!

Bhargav Kesavan

Loved it. Such a lovely view. It’s on a small cliff, very beautiful. Great spot to sit in calm and serene location. You’ll never know how time flies if you’re not in hurry.

Mary Ann Loss

Just might be the smallest light house I have ever been to.

Jason Peter

Great place .

Sarah M

Very neat once you find it. Look for the castle hill inn and there's a path that leads back to it at the far end of the parking lot.


So peaceful, and beautiful.

Corina Mayo

Could see it very faintly at a distance as the road leading to Castle Hill Lighthouse was blocked off due to the hotel nearby having some type of entertainment. Very disappointed that there seems to be only one entrance and exit.

Humayun Parvez

Vivek Murthy

Beautiful spot its on private property of a hotel but they don't mind people visiting the spot. The entrance path is hidden look for a small square wooden sign nailed to a 2x4 about 3 feet tall.

Maribel Hernandez

Most people GPS will take them to Coast Guard Station Castle Hill. I know because I work there. Please make sure you're reading ALL of the signs because civilians often find themselves face to face with a coastie for not staying aware of their surroundings. The lighthouse is beautiful and easy to get to. It's worth a visit.

Bob Loneker

Great view of the harbor on top of a elevated rock formation. You can't climb the light house. Not a destination for young kids.

Michael Castle

A small lighthouse. Can't go inside it.

Nice staff beautiful hike out to lighthouse. I'm told there is a nicely maintained trail but rocks along water were fun.

Francisco Javier del Castillo Cortázar

Beautiful landscape. A little bit far from civilization.

Vince Leese

This is a must visit restaurant. The views from here are amazing!

Gabe Fleming

This isn't even a business so I don't know why I'm reviewing this but sure I'll give it a shot: This lighthouse isn't just an ordinary light house. This light house draws you in and makes you contimplate what it is to be human in a world so full of craziness and hatred, that sometimes you lose your way. Something about this light house just didn't make me want to leave the Rocky cliffs on which it stands.

m&C chen

It’s a beautiful place in Newport

Franklin Reyes

It's great to refresh your self after hard times I really like fishing their

Barbara Elias Wagoner

Superb service inside while having no rsvp the dog had a front row seat at the bar,oversubscribed and not willing to serve 4 patrons. They have upped game on lobster roll.

Beautiful. Lighthouses have always been so fascinating to me. This style is so much different from the ones I am used to in the West coast. Loved seeing this

Went in the off season and parked by the dock. Very short hike to get to the lighthouse.

Skip Martin

A beautiful place to be to watch the ocean. Even saw a couple of seals come up.

To get to the lighthouse drive to the inn (or park downhill) and take one of the trails throw the forest. Trails are not visible on Google Maps, but easy to spot - just walk along trees until you see a trail going in - all of them lead to a lighthouse. It takes around 5 minutes to walk from parking spot to the lighthouse.

Shawn Beresford

Park in the lot just after entering Castle Hill. The trail is directly across the street and a short, easy walk to the lighthouse. A must see in Rhode Island.

Janice Curry

The directions to the lighthouse were vague if nonexistant. We walked a trail through private property with posted signs to find our way. Many were doing the same. The lighthouse was positioned below the trails end. There are stairs down to the lower area, but only room for 3 or 4 people at a time.

Mike Gao

Spectacular view. Came here to see the lighthouse sunset view in a clear summer evening and witnessed a proposal and it was accepted - it simply rendered a romantic touch to the scene. Google maps GPS marked it correctly however I missed the entrance first time - the sign at the entrance says Castle Hill Inn, making you think a private place not likely for access to it. Later turned in and drove until stopped at a guard post. The guard told me I came to the right place. I can use their parking lot for free. Then a very short walk following the trail whose first half cause you to wonder where it may lead to. Then thru the trees and bushes and there you are. A good photographing site or simply do nothing and enjoy the view.

Had an awesome lunch at the Lawn, perfect day with amazing views and great food

Sandip Ray

Best time to visit here is during the sun set! Go around the mansions throughout the day and once the mansions are closed come over to the lighthouse and relax! The spot is bit walking from the parking and need to cover a little trail but is accessible for all age groups! I recommend to return before it gets dark and specially if you are not carrying a flashlight. Lighthouse itself is not at all impressive, its a small one but the place around and the sun set view makes this location very special.

Steven Schreiner


Stacey Miller

This is a must see next to the mansions and cliffwalks! Very beautiful

As someone who occasionally likes to mess around with their DSLR (camera), it’s fun to find cool places to take photos. Castle Hill Lighthouse is one such place. A friend and I recently went. The mission, for me, was to try and capture the classic Rhode Island postcard image of castle hill lighthouse. I don’t know if I did, but I still had fun climbing over the rocks to see this little hidden RI gem. If you get the chance, go see it for yourself; it’s a nice area. There are a few “private property” signs around, near the Castle Hill Inn side, but if you google it, you can find guides online that will get you to the lighthouse.

Keith Duncan

Beautiful views of the bay and passing boats

Nick Kopanski

This place is secluded and you need to be a guest of the hotel in order to view it unless you do what I did and just walk the path to it lol. Awesome experience. It was actually kind of creepy climbing up the lighthouse because nobody but me was there.

Mark Mulone

Always fabulous. Food, service and ambiance. Enjoy


Great views and a nice little walk from the parking lot.

Ethan Morgan

Awesome place for a picnic in newport!



Gary Schnaper

Brings back memories

Candice Seplow

The day I went to photograph the lighthouse was foggy, but still made for an interesting affect.

Monique Flint

Nice little lighthouse. A short walk from the parking lot. Be,aware if you use GPS directions it will take you to the Inn. Stop at the parking lot at the bottom of the hill to the right. The path is across the street. You will see private property signs, but think its because it is on the Inn grounds.
