The breakwater offers lovely views of the Wood End Light Station on a seemingly endless horizon, with marsh grass and tidal ponds in the foreground. This stout, squared, 39-foot-tall lighthouse was constructed in 1872.
It looks like Long Point and, like Long Point, it’s under the care of the American Lighthouse Foundation. But where Long Point flashes green, Wood End flashes red, every 10 seconds. Its fog horn is especially chatty. The keeper’s house was torn down after the light was automated in 1961, but an oil house remains.
