A very pretty lighthouse on the campus of the Southern Maine Community College. You will need to park on the campus parking lot as there is no specific parking for visitors to the lighthouse. You can walk up to the lighthouse on an uneven rock jetty but cannot walk inside.

Found this lighthouse by accident while looking for Bug Light. What a pleasant surprise!! Tucked in a college campus with a small amount of parking but a great little gem. I found myself coming here every morning of my visit to Cape Elizabeth. The stone path the light house is a fun little walk that leads you right up to the lighthouse itself and great views all around. Remains of a fort wall remain on the grounds as well to wander around. A suggestion for anyone visiting in the summer months and loved by mosquitos like I am is to bring some insect repellent. Other than that I highly recommend visiting.

A very cute lighthouse but too slippery in the winter. No signage for directions and also no "public" parking. Buried in the community college.

This spark plug type lighthouse is located near Southern Maine Community College and has a small parking lot near there. It's fun to walk the 900' breakwater to get right up to the lighthouse but be careful because the big rocks are uneven and have gaps between them. I was lucky enough to get the perfect photo--the lighthouse with a sailboat in the background. My husband and I have visited this area and never tire of seeing the lighthouses. So many and so close together!

I enjoyed visiting this lighthouse and jumping along the rocks but it's not for everyone. There are large gaps between the rocks so if you aren't long legged you may have to jump across the gaps. Probably not great for children.
