Picturesque lighthouse with a great walkway

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.

This is the light house that Tom Hanks runs up to in Forest Gump. The museum is nice. Lots of interesting things about the granite quarry.

Maine is a beautiful part of America and Port Clyde is the prettiest spot along the coast for me and my family. Marshall Point Lighthouse is a delightful spot to stop. You can see the Laura B. taking visitors to and from Monhegan Island. This is the spot Tom Hanks made famous in his move Forrest Gump. The entire family... More

This is one of the more iconic lighthouses that was made famous by Tom Hanks in the movie Forest Gump. It's a little out of the way, but this lighthouse is more accesible with no hiking involved. We arrived and it was foggy, and we were thinking of going back because there's no view. But we were glad we stayed.... More

This is a beautiful spot with great coastline. There is a quaint little museum here too. We encountered many people painting there on our visit. And, we just took in the views of the coastline and the boats around. I would go again!!

Staffed by locals that really know the history of this area. Nice folks. Old land grant maps, an outstanding arrowhead collection, everything you want to know about lobstering.

Gift shop and fort here with a grassy area for picnicking - beautiful views of the ocean -- very quiet and out of the way - a great place to spend an afternoon.

Take a WALK from the bustle of the docks out to Marshall Point, where Forest Gump notably ended his cross-country trek. Sit and breathe and rest: watch the lobster boats rumble by, the cutters criss cross and even a schooner sail by. Then go into the FREE museum to learn about two hundred years of life along the coast: fishing,... More
