Nice park and walk

Nice light and walk on seawall. Very nice park and easy walk to bug light. The light is visible from all of Portland and it was nice to see up close.

This lighthouse and surrounding area was great! We walked out on the stones to the lighthouse. Amazing! We took many pictures. This was a great place to see!

We visited the fort and lighthouse while attending a wedding right on site. We loved the area so much, with the wide sweeping views of Portland Harbor , that we came back a day after the wedding to walk out to the lighthouse and walk along the shore. From the lighthouse you can see Portland Head light, lobstering boats ,... More

We totally enjoyed this lighthouse. The walk out is fun, but I don't recommend flip flops. I did it barefooted. Once out there you can watch the fisherman/women and the boats going by.

This lighthouse is hard to find, but worth it. You get to walk out on the break wall. You do need to be careful walking out to it. There are a lot of holes in the rocks.

Great view. The light is at the end of a breakwater - not for anyone with difficulty walking. Many ships in the harbor the day we visited. Not much parking.

So glad we took the time to stop here! We had a nice walk out to the lighthouse! My son enjoyed walking out on the big rocks. Just be careful because some of the spacing on the rocks might be far for some people.

Fun to walk across all the boulders to get to it with beautiful views all around. Free parking, but not many spaces available.

It was quite windy while we were there and we didn't have time to enjoy the hiking trails, but it looked like it could be a pleasant place to spend some time with the family.

The lighthouse is simply magnificent and we picked a day that it was open for a tour. The walk out to the light on the boulders was breath taking and not for the faint of heart but oh so well worth the trip. This light was a "live in" light and during the tour you could go up and see... More
