Pemaquid Point is so perfectly picturesque, especially if you take a walk on the rocky shoreline and look back up at the lighthouse. Quintessential Maine beauty. The view really says it all. A must see.

I have seen weddings here, sat on the rocks in the dark here, sketched here, thought about life here and felt the pull of Bristol's history here. Pure heaven for anyone who knows the power of waves on the ocean.

This must be one of the most picturesque lighthouses in Maine, because it was chosen to grace the Maine quarter and because of the famous 1929 watercolor of it by Edward Hopper. Before you go, check the Bristol parks website for seasonal hours and admission.

This lighthouse is on the back of the Maine state quarter. Nice place and beautiful cliffs. You are able to climbed to the top. The line wasn’t too terribly long, but they only let five people up at once and they won’t let anyone else...More

This lighthouse and the surrounding cliffs and rocks never tire for me. Depending on the ambient light and where the sun is in the sky it is different from my other visits. I love the contours and shapes and patterns of the rocks in front...More

Absolutely stunning views of the surrounding sea! A lighthouse which you can explore inside of, beware while very well maintained the stairs get narrower as you get higher and the last step is just about as vertical as it gets. A definite experience I'm glad...More

Since we were "tourists", I am not aware of a season. I believe the lighthouse to be open all year around. Of course, some winter storms may cause a temporary closure. Hours are "day light" hours.
