I finally got a chance to see a lighthouse in Maine! This one was lovely. The smells and sounds of the boats, lighthouse, the fog... It was picturesque. And having to cross boulders to get to it made the adventure more memorable. Wear comfy shoes. Note to self, don't wear Stuart Weitzman's trying to walk to see a lighthouse. Sneakers... More

Only open weekends. You must walk on rocks (breakwater) to get to the lighthouse. Buy tickets ($5 per person) at little building/gift shop before going to the lighthouse. Fun to tour the lighthouse and guide did a great job.

The walk to the lighthouse was relaxing but a hike. It was cool with the breeze from the water. Family friendly and a workout at the same time!

The stone path is easy to walk on and pretty safe as it's very wide (wouldn't take a stroller though). Can't climb into the lighthouse but the view is still wonderful.

Beautiful area to view & explore! You can walk all the way out on the rocks (which is kind of far) or stay along the shore! I love to visit this area to get some fresh air.

You can't go wrong with a visit to a Maine lighthouse. Always a great place for photo ops and of course picnics by the water.

I thought the exhibits were well organized, the grounds clean and maintained. The staff person was interesting to talk with especially when he was listing all the different light houses he had visited.

The view of Casco Bay from the end of the 950 foot granite breakwater is not to be missed! The lighthouse is open for tours on weekends during summer, but has a 51" height requirement to climb the ladders. The boulders that form the breakwater are easy to walk on, but the gaps between them range from 2 inches to... More
