Nubble Lighthouse reviews
There are lots of lighthouses to see in Maine and this should be at the top of the list. It's such a scenics spot and reminds me of England, It's just beautiful.

Very nice and relax place. Lots of spaces to park. The view is stunning and you can walk down the rocks pretty close to the ocean to get the perfect picture. There is a nice gift shop and very clean restrooms. The staff recommended the blue berry soda from the cooler. It's delicious!
Such a picturesque spot!! My boys loved climbing all over the rocky shore and looking at the lighthouse. It was low tide and we were able to find pools of mini ecosystems in the rocks! They loved learning the history of the lighthouse and that, at one time, there was a lighthouse keeper that lived their with boys their age . I just wish the visitor center was less of a store and more of a museum/information center.
It is a beautiful place to visit. They have an amazing gift store with lots to choose from. My daughter found signed books from local authors. You can walk pretty far onto the rocks. I highly recommend visiting if you get the chance!
What a beautiful lighthouse this is. You can’t actually go over to this one or in it (I believe it’s a private residence), but it has some absolutely stunning scenery all around it. The park across from it gives you several different angles and ways to photograph this lighthouse. Definitely worth a stop to see it.
Nubble is a very well known, popular destination. The Lighthouse sits just off the coast on its very own island. It's a wonderful spot to catch a nice sunrise. There is also a small food/ ice cream spot right there, with great reviews. Very popular. Parking is limited, so plan ahead!
