I'm from Maine, and have never seen the sights. One day I wanted to take a dive and ended here. It's a nice drive out of the way, and it's an icon of Maine for a reason.

This is a truly beautiful lighthouse. The best of all the ones we visited in Maine (only did a handful of the many). The access is easy and the view spectacular. Just don't be there when the foghorn goes off. Beautiful to behold.

Great lighthouse for photos. We were there on a clear Sept day and it was lovely. No stair climbing - just drive up and soak in the view.

The lighthouse is accessible and lovely. The museum was closed but it was well worth a trip to see this museum. It would be a great spot for a picnic.

Great little museum with local artifacts from Port Clyde and lighthouse. Nice walk out to lighthouse and well groomed grounds. Very short walk from parking lot to lighthouse. A Short drive from downtown Port Clyde

Friendly hosts - well preserved historical site, just outside the charming coastal village of Port Clyde. Worth the visit.

I visited this lighthouse the first time in 1999 but you could not walk out to the light. The walkway was open this year but really the best pictures are from land anyway. The small museum is full of interesting facts about the lighthouse history. But also artifacts of life in the area over the past 150 years or so.

Loved the elevated walkway to the lighthouse. Good place for walking down to the water and look for seashells. Worth the drive to the end of the Island.

Not only is the lighthouse located in one of the most beautiful coastal areas in the world - it is well cared for and complete with an excellent museum. Don't miss this one on your next visit to Maine.
