  • Pretty setting, easily accessible. Keeper's house lovely, small interpretive program in the museum area. Nicest at high tide with waves crashing around the shore.

  • Spectacular views. Plus, it's in a movie (Forrest Gump).
  • Place is absolutely stunning at sunset.
  • Iconic lighthouse of the Maine Coast at a beautiful location in Port Clyde. Fascinating variegated geology on the rocky point. Charming museum has exibits detailing the history of granite work, the fishing trade, and the sardine factory fire.
  • AMAZING views at this lighthouse. One of my photographs won an award! Totally worth the side trip.
