This light house is astounding We saw the waves crashing up against the natural sea cliffs. One of the best views I've seen from the edges

This is a great spot. Wonderful view. Cool lighthouse which the Maine quarter was fashioned after.The volunteers here are terrific. Yes, they don't get paid and do this out of the goodness of their hearts. Thank you for hosting us!

Quiet, even though peak season. The main attraction is the beautiful coastal views and the attractive lighthouse. There was a fisherman museum which we popped our heads into - not worth the trip for that alone. There was a long queue to climb the lighthouse as only 5 people were allowed up at once, so we didn't climb up -... More

We had been told to visit Pemaquid Point for many years but never had as it requires a bit of a drive from Boothbay Harbor or other peninsulas where we have stayed. I wish we had gone there sooner as it is a real gem. The rocky coast with the waves crashing, the mist, and some fog are just what... More

My wife and I visited the Pemaquid Light on a recent trip to the Boothbay area. This was the highlight of our stay! The ocean views are stunning, the lighthouse fascinating. The fisherman museum adjacent to the lighthouse is very interesting, as well. Worth a trip if you are anywhere close.

It's a bit remote but about a 35 minute drive from Newcastle. This is one of the most beautiful places to see and I have travelled extensively. The rocky ocean ledge affords beautiful views. You can go up into the lighthouse after 10:30AM if they have a volunteer on site. I was a bit early for that but did visit... More

The Portland Head light seems to get all the attention, but this was a beautiful spot. small charge to visit, but you get to climb to the top and get a little view. The volunteer staffing the light was great. Only five people or so can go up at a time, so there was a short wait but not more... More

You can get up close and personal with this lighthouse. Wear good shoes for climbing on rocks because you will want to do this. Explore the lighthouse, the rocks, the views, the birds... plan on spending some time here (and at all the lighthouses you may stop to see)... just take it all in and find your happy place!

I've been coming to Maine all my life and visiting this lighthouse never gets old. Wear sneakers and take a walk on the rocks and watch the tide move in and out. Very relaxing and peaceful.
