“Lovely one to stop by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

After the long hike and a cold beer, I decided I had a bit more energy to walk up -- 20 minutes uphill to see the lighthouse. It was a breathtaking view! Worth of my energy.

“gorgeous views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is a GREAT place to watch the sunset. The museum is right there as well, although it will be closed by sunset. So make two trips up there.

“The Monhegan Lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The Monhegan Lighthouse may not offer the beauty and majestic feeling that Portland, Bass Harbor and the Cape Neddick Hubble, but its rustic place on the island makes it worth the trip.

“wonderful sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

had been told that this would be one of the best sunsets on the island so that was where we started. The lighthouse always looks lovely but even better in the soft light of evening.

“Excellent place to watch the sunset.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This has one of the best vistas on the island. A great place for photography. The lighthouse is a short but steep walk up from the main road. Allow some time for the museum.
