Our first visit here. Took many many pictures. Want to be sure to get an excellent one. Forgot my best camera though! Could have spent hours watching and listening to the ocean waves against the rocks. Very clean and well kept. If you come to Maine don't pass this by whethet you have a few minutes or a few hours...

We visited at low tide. Visibility was good. Gift shop is worth the visit. Nice people enjoying the scenery and taking photos of each other.

Views like this is why my wife and I choose to visit Maine. You can sit there and look at the views for hours and never get tired of it. Seeing the waves crashing on the rocky coast was a site we will always remember.

Kind of strange to get to. You have to proceed through a very crowded & narrow two way street with the beach to your left. If you go in season, be very aware of beach goers. After you get through the crowdewd beach area you kind of go through a little neighborhood & then there is a small parking lot.... More

This lighthouse is beautiful from a distance. Bring a camera and good shoes. You can climb down on the rocks to get people free photos. The water crashing on the rocks priceless. I could have sat there all day.

We visited Nubble Light this week and do so each time we are in the area. No matter the weather, we always enjoy the views and sounds of the sea crashing on the rocks and the gulls soaring above. This scenic vista is New England in all its glory!

Beautiful Maine lighthouse even on a rainy blustery day. Love the surf crashing on the rocks- exposed tidal pools- rocks to climb on

It looks like what you'd expect to see in Maine. It was beautiful and the town is great too. You can't access the lighthouse but the views will knock your socks off.

It was beautiful at the Nubble Lighthouse. The kids were able to explore the rocks and tide pools. We got some great pictures. This is a wonderful and FREE attraction!

Visited Nubble for the hundredth time on Monday. In the rain. No matter, the view is worth the effort... and the serenity I feel when I am in the area at this time of year helps me to decompress. The drive out Nubble Road is still wonderful... though the building continues and someday it will become over-developed and may even... More
