  • Great place to sit and relax. Beautiful area, daughter was student at SMCC and would like to walk to lighthouse when visiting.  more »
  • Loved walking out to the jetty and we do it during all 4 seasons. Pleasant sitting on the far side on the rocks watching the lobster boats.  more »
  • Less well known that its neighbour the Portland Head Light this tiny lighthouse at the end of a long Pier offers fabulous views of each side. Less busy, but always very photogenic

  • Not far from downtown Portland you can find Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. This is a great little spot to get some fresh air. And walk the rocks down to the lighthouse. Beautiful location great for taking pictures!
  • Parking was tough. You are on a college campus and many of the parking spots are reserved. You can climb out on the rocks and walk out to the lighthouse. Great picture opportunities and lots of fun. Mind the smaller children because there are some deep cracks between the rocks but nothing too dangerous. We went in the late afternoon and the pictures were fantastic.
  • This is a great lighthouse to visit and is just across the water from Old Port (the historic part of Portland). Totally worth the visit and a great spot for some photos. It looks like you might be able to tour it during special hours or by request- wish I would've looked into that before we visited since we like history!
  • One of the historic lighthouses close to downtown Portland. Free admission. Worth a visit if you are in town and have a car. Bundle up if you are visiting in the winter as the weather can be quite brutal around the area.
  • I love lighthouses, and if the weather is okay, you can actually walk out to this one. A fun ledge lighthouse and beautiful surroundings! A must stop on the way from Acadia to Portland!
