Just a short drive from downtown Portland. Scenic views and unique (but walkable) breakwater. Nice view of the Portland Headlight and Portland Harbor.

A deceptively attractive lighthouse and surrounding park situated behind a community college near Portland. The light house itself is located at the end of a 900 feet granite rock water break. There are paved walkways with benches and a small beach in the area as well. We came here for sunrise on our first day in Portland and then the... More

You can walk out to this 1897 Maine lighthouse on the giant stones that make up the breakwater, and you should. Very scenic, a few free parking spots nearby and a great view of the boat traffic sailing into and out of Portland Harbor. It's a short drive from downtown Portland and there's a public bus, Route 21, that runs... More

Once we found a parking spot, it was a nice challenge walking out to the lighthouse. The walk can be done in about ten minutes, just be careful and take your time. Once your at the lighthouse, just relax and enjoy the views.

It was pretty windy, so we didn't stay too long. The scenery is beautiful though. On a summer day it would have been perfect.

The volunteers that guide you know all the lighthouse history. Beautiful views of Casco Bay and Portland. A great jetty walk included.

Sometimes the lighthouse has tours, its fun to do. Parking is iffy, there are other lots but if you pass them you wouldnt know it and then end up at the end near the point.

nice spot, you have to walk along the jetty to get to the lighthouse at the end, an easy walk that gives you a closer view of the fort out in the water.

We boat around the islands near our home in CT and see lots of so-called sparkplug lighthouses (as well as listening to the one on the New Haven breakwater which keeps me up on foggy nights). They are very interesting, but you can't see them without a boat, and even then, you are x-amount of yards away. This is the... More

This is a small and unique lighthouse. The tour was interesting and was led by a very knowledgeable man. You need to walk about 1/4 mile on a breakwater to get to the lighthouse. The stones have some gaps between them so it is not accessible with a wheelchair or walker. The tour requires climbing up and down on sturdy... More
