Located on Coast Guard property, access is restricted, so, most often you have a limited view of the lighthouse itself. But the rocky coastline at its base is beautiful. It reminded me of The Burren in Ireland. Amazing!
You know that you have become hopelessly addicted to lighthouse photography when you cannot move more than 2 feet in any direction without pointing the camera again towards the lighthouse, in search of that perfect combination of light and color.

Actually not a lot to do here, but just beautiful to see. This is the most classic of light houses. It has beautiful water views with a rocky shoreline. This is where Forrest Gump ended his cross country run. There are letters painted on the rocks commemorating the wreck of Annie Maguire. There is a rock indicating a place where... 更多
Very scenic area. We made this our first lighthouse we visited while in Maine. It is the oldest lighthouse in Maine built by George Washington and also the location where "Forrest Gump" ended his cross-country run in the movie of the same name. We also walked down to the Goddard Mansion built in 1958 by a successful lumberman. Enjoyed walking... 更多

Fort Williams park is, an important... 更多

The park area on the point was a rocky rugged shoreline that begged to be climbed and explored. It also gave great views... 更多
Park near the water edge and walk to the stone formations. Take a panoramic view of the place, combined with the gentle sound of the waves. A very relaxing place!
My wife and I could not pass up a chance to see the Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse and its twin which has been converted to a private dwelling. The views of the lighthouse and the surrounding area are always spectacular.
