There were people getting ready to scuba dive, boats on tours and people just hanging out. The lighthouse has a gift shop with great prints of the lighthouse and very reasonably priced. You could have them personalized... More

I went when the sun was starting to go down, so it was particularly beautiful. You can take nice pictures there. Parking may be a little difficult depending on time you go and season. However we did not have a hard time. You can not go up close to it (at least I dont think can) because set apart but... More

People sitting around on the rocks watching the tide crash against the huge boulders. People socializing, artists painting, gulls swooping - while the light house sits atop a hill just off shore. Get good driving instructions to find it.

This lighthouse is beautiful! You should make it your number one priority if your in the York area! This is my second visit to this lighthouse and it still is amazing! Perfect photo areas and it has parking but I think it needs more. I would return again!

Made the trip from Portsmouth and glad we did. Was a great location to relax or spend time scrambling on the rocks. Be sure to call in at Browns Ice Cream!!

I was more than overjoyed to learn that I was going to have the chance to stop there during our New England vacation. I was stunned and thrilled. I took an enormous amount of photos and enjoyed...

If you are in the area this is a must see. Great photo op! I always see people way down on the rocks though, be careful if it is rough it could sweep you away.

A beautiful lighthouse in a gorgeous area. You definitely don't want to miss this one. Although it is on a large rock right off the mainland and you can't get to it, it is still worth it!
