Best viewed from Fort Williams on a clear day. It's quite a site to look and imagine that it was once occupied by light-keepers!

Ram Island can only be viewed from a distance, visit Fort Williams Park to view it, and visit Portland Head Light at the same time in the park.

This is a nice lighthouse located out on an island. You need to access it by water. It was a lovely clear day when we were at Portland Head lighthouse so got some good views.

I'm not sure how one rates a light house? We saw it from our sunset light house tour we took one evening. I wouldn't take the tour just for this, but was neat to see. A very typical lighthouse that I don't believe you can...More

You can't walk on the jettied land in which the lighthouse sits. So either get on one of the many tour boats heading out to Portland Head Light or use binoculars from Portland Head to see this lighthouse. Went with friends visiting over the summer.

We saw this lighthouse from Ft Williams and were really able to get a much better look at it during the harbor cruise. Nice lighthouse standing alone. Very solemn looking.

This is a lighthouse on a small island in Casco Bay. It can be seen from the Portland Head Light area of Fort Williams park. Can be photographed with a telephoto lens of at least 200mm focal length.

You can view this smaller lighthouse from Fort Williams Park, however you can't visit it. It's still a great view and since Portland Head Lighthouse is at Fort Williams Park, you can see them both!
