It's a great place to take pictures. Also you can walk around the point. You can't go to the lighthouse, but you can admire from the distance.

Very beautiful lighthouse with stunning scenery. Makes for great pictures! No tours are available because the lighthouse is surrounded by water, but you're able to stop and stare as long as you'd like. It was not far off the main road and signs easily point you in the right direction. A definite must see if nearby!

Parking is limited, but turns over rather quickly. You can't get to the lighthouse; only look at it from afar. But it is a great sight to see and makes for nice photos.

It's certainly one of the most photographed spots in new England, and I can see why. An iconic lighthouse that Is worth stopping by if you're in the York area. You can't go on the property, but you can get within about 100 ft of it.

This lighthouse is easily accessed by a short drive from York, but you can't cross over to the island that it's located on. In any event, it is an amazing sight. The power if the ocean crashing on the rocks just below your feet is breathtaking. We spent over an hour taking it all in.

A must see when in Maine. This is one of the prettiest lighthouses in Maine. It is worth going to visit. You can take some great pictures here too have as a memory. Parking easy. There's a great little restaurant right near there. Don't forget your camera

This was a beautiful lighthouse in York! We were there on a clear day and took great photos. You cannot actually go on the island where the lighthouse/house are, but can look from a distance.

This lighthouse is a treat in that is so close you can almost touch it! Beautiful coastal area with a small seating area.... A great place to spend a while and enjoy the Maine coast.
