Little Brewster Island is a rocky outer island in the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area.
This two-acre island is best known as the home of Boston Light, the country’s oldest continually used lighthouse site (1716).
Because it is still the site of an active Coast Guard facility, opportunities to visit the island are restricted, although guided tours of the island and lighthouse are available.
