From its landmark lighthouse to its historic homes, there’s plenty to uncover when you set out to explore Stage Harbor. The Stage Harbor Lighthouse, also known as Harding’s Beach Lighthouse, may just be one of the most recognizable sites in this part of Cape Cod.
It’s actually the region’s youngest lighthouse. Constructed in the late 1800s at the entrance to Stage Harbor, the lighthouse is privately owned today, but you may still find time to see it during the occasional tour. It does open to the public during a designated week in May.
It’s still possible to see the lighthouse from afar, though, with some of the best views possible from Harding’s Beach. You may also be able to get a good view from the other side of the harbor.
