Block Island Surprise Proposal to get engaged

Mohegan Bluffs is the perfect place on Block Island to pull out a diamond ring and propose to your significant other and get engaged! Located in New Shoreham RI, the Southeast Lighthouse on the Southeast side of Block Island. The Lighthouse is up on a bluff over looking the Atlantic Ocean. You can go down off the bluff to the beach below, but not from the lighthouse. You have to go around the corner to the Bluff Overlook, where you will find both a beautiful view and the 141 steps down to the beach below. It’s a walk that’s not handicap accessible. As for the lighthouse, don't get confused with the second lighthouse called the North Light, on the North Side of the island.

Southeast Lighthouse is about 1.5 miles from Town center and was erected in 1875.

The hours of the Southeast Lighthouse from their website are:

  • In the Summer (through Labor Day): Daily 10am–4pm
  • In Fall (through October 8): Weekends 10pm–4pm
  • Winter: Closed
  • Grounds open daily, sunrise to sunset

    Block Island is a 30 minute ferry ride from Pt. Judith Rhode Island on the fast ferry, and a 1 hour ride on the traditional/car ferry. You do have to call to make reservations to bring your car over, you can’t do it online. The last ferry off the island at night is 7PM. If you don’t want to bring your car over, you can grab cabs all over the island. If you are daring enough, there are mopeds you can rent, or bikes available.

    When proposing on Block Island, you want to have a back up plan if you are hiring a photographer. There is spotty reception all over the island, and getting in touch via text messages out at the Lighthouse can be tricky.

    If you are looking to get engaged or married on Block Island, let me help you find the perfect spot!

Location: Southeast Lighthouse South East Light Road, New Shoreham, Rhode Island.
