We enjoyed this stop. Nice easy walk and enough parking for everyone without a lot of crowds. You could walk right out to the lighthouse. The view across the Bay of Portland was really nice. You could watch ships coming and going. We were glad that we took the time to come check out this place. You could also see Fort George.

Thank Eric S

It was chilly & rainy the day we stopped by. There is a really nice park which we weren't able to enjoy too much but I'm sure on nicer days, would be a great place to watch the harbor. There isn't a big lighthouse keepers house or flashy surroundings, but it was very nice anyway.

This is the "CLASSIC" lighthouse you dream about. On a bluff with a fantastic view of the surrounding Casco Bay. At the time of our visit (May) there were no crowds so we were able to enjoy the tour, grounds and sights at leisure in quiet. There are some FANTASTIC photos of water breaking over the lightouse during a nor'easter with the spume of the waves reaching almost to the rotunda of the light.

The main photos and several descriptions here are for Portland HEAD Light. Bug Light is located on the breakwater across from the Old Port of Portland in a nice little local park. There is a walk along the water and the small light is accessible over a few large, cut stone blocks.
