We went on the long coast hike, as well as, the shorter coast guard loop. Both were fragrant with pine, offered gorgeous overlooks, and the long loop had trails that descend onto the beach. Even in the fog we loved this place. The visitor center...More

This is one of our favorite lighthouses from our recent trip to Maine. Easy parking. Easy walk to lighthouse. Very informative museum in house and a very photographic lighthouse and view of the ocean and bay. Definitely have your camera with you.

We visited the "furtherest east point" in the USA on our drive about in the NE. Cute light house. Be sure to walk down to the beach and get that perspective. It's a drive to get there but it's a cute little town.

The West Quoddy Lighthouse was lovely, and the surrounding park beautiful. There are trails to walk. There is an "honors system" entrance fee.

What a pretty lighthouse. And it is the easternmost point in the US. Be sure to keep driving to the end of the road to get to the light house.

I am making my first visit to Maine next week, traveling from NC. Staying in Bar Harbor so this lighthouse is a couple hours away. Are there any other worthwhile attractions, restaurants or sights to see in the area of West Quoddy Lighthouse?

Not on a routine basis, but there is a special open lighthouse day when that is possible and easily searched online. Nearby on Campobello Island in Canada is East Quoddy Light. You can walk to it only during low tide... More
