The lighthouse is located on the southwest side of Brier Island just north of Whipple Point. Whipple Point is the SE extreme of Brier Island. From the there, Gull Rocks Bars, most of which dry, extend 1.5 miles SW to Gull Rock, 2 m (7 ft) high. Brier Island Southwest Ledge, at a least depth of 4.1 m (13 ft), is situated 1.9 miles SW of Gull Ledge. A heavy tide rip extends from Gull Rock to about 1.5 miles SSW of the ledge. The lighthouse stands on guard against this hazard. It is accessible by a road across the island.
