  • Not much parking, and you can't get close to the lighthouse without trespassing on private residential property. Stopping on the dead end street for a quick photo is ok, but walking around seems to ma...  more »
  • I visited on a heavy fog day and was not disappointed. The heavy surf was a beautiful backdrop to the Light house. Great photo spot.  more »
  • Hard to get to and blocked off to public traffic, you can at least get a glimpse of it from a residential road - it is a cute, typical New England lighthouse, very picturesque.  more »

  • The Cape Elizabeth Light (formerly, Two Lights Lighthouse East Tower) is visible from the parking lot at the end of Two Lights Rd. You can also see the East Tower from the end of 2 Lights Terrace. Turn around to get of view of the West Tower, then drive over to Beacon Lane... the decommissioned lighthouse is right next to the street. It's easy to view (and photograph) both towers from this location. The unfortunate thing is wealthy folks have built too many large homes here. It would have been nice to be able to experience the area the same way Edward Hopper did when he painted "The Lighthouse at Two Lights" in 1929. Avoid paying to get into Two Lights State Park (glad I did) if your goal is to see the lighthouses. They aren't there. The park is poorly named, and the name should be changed, but I'm sure they're wanting to make money off unsuspecting tourists. That's too bad, but it doesn't detract from the great views of both lighthouses (especially if you avoid the park!). I feel bad for tourists who didn't make it to see the lighthouses because they were confused by the name of the park. Clearly, from some of the ratings/comments below, there people who did get duped by the park's name.
  • I visited in early spring. Arrived early morning and was the only one there! Chilly, but still very beautiful!
  • Loved it but i didnt realized that it was privately owned place. It was difficult to find the light house.
  • Beautiful lighthouse but parking is not good! I enjoyed Portland light house more!
  • Nice lighthouse.
