Lived in Maine many years. Never knew about this place. Found it by accident. Beautiful and serene. Walked out of the to the breakers. Don't wear flip-flops! Watched the CAT sail by. No bathrooms; just portapotties. Wished I had brought a bike! Will come again!

If your lucky you get a couple big sail boats sailing by as you take your pictures. There is a great coast line, The skyline of Portland and there was a cruise ship at dock when we were there.

There are like 4 parking spaces for this lighthouse. In every other spot, there are " tow away" signs. It's almost like they don't want visitors.

Spring Point Lighthouse is an interesting find. It's tucked behind a community college, so you'll have to park a short walk away, but it's a nice seaside walk. We're glad our daughter took us to see it. Just so you can prepare, the walk on...More
