Awesome lighthouse!

I visited on June 9, 2015 during a roadtrip with three other friends. Since we are from PA, we don't see a lot of lighthouses. Therefore we enjoyed everyone we visited, and this... read more

My wife and I were on a Fall Foliage Tour and we saw this lighthouse from the boat. We didn't get the opportunity to actually visit the lighthouse. Enjoyed seeing the Lighthouse from the Boat.

I visited on June 9, 2015 during a roadtrip with three other friends. Since we are from PA, we don't see a lot of lighthouses. Therefore we enjoyed everyone we visited, and this one was no different. This one was really cool because you could walk out on the rocks to the lighthouse and walk around it. There is also... More

It's so lovely down here by the sea. I wanted to rent one of the vacant cottages for the winter! Autumn was in full bloom. It's definitely a dog friendly city. Free parking.

A small lighthouse but very accessible. It is well worth the visit since there is a good view of Portland and Casco bay.

Awesome, especially if you walk out to the end. Be careful, take your time, but well worth it. Boats right in front of you. Good history all around you, the fort with the cannon holes are very cool. Walk around to the little beach and rocks. The community Collge is also right there, waht a cool spot to go to... More

Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse was our second stop on our self-guided lighthouse tour. It was fun to "rock-hop" all the way out to the light even though it was freezing in mid-October! I would love to go back some spring or summer day and picnic on the rocks. The view from the top of the fortress structure was amazing! There... More

Parking is easy and the surrounding area is fun too. Explore the old bunkers and get a reat view of Casco Bay.

This lighthouse is a little difficult to find if you don't have gps, but it is worth the effort. I used Onstar and it took me right there. The lighthouse is very picturesque, great for photos. It's a long walk to the lighthouse itself on large somewhat flat rocks. We were able to take a few photos before the fog... More

We were there on a weekday so there was no tour. Parking can be difficult to find. The lighthouse is located at the end of the breakwater, which is skillfully constructed but can be challenging at times to walk along. Sometimes there are wider gaps between the rocks and you have to stop and plan your path. While the lighthouse... More

This is a adorable lighthouse that is a quick visit of the ones in Portland. I would recommend seeing it.
