There's a reason this lighthouse is one of Microsoft's most beautiful background pictures for Windows!! Take extra time to climb up, have a picnic and rock hop when the tide's out! SPECTACULAR VIEWS!!
This is a special art gallery, staffed by artists and displaying really talented local artists. We almost always buy something from the gallery. Next door is a nice little museum with lots of pictures and maps of the Maine lighthouses and their history. They run a video with pictures and information on the lighthouses as well.

Revisit with family. Small funky museum filled with all sorts of old photos, ship implements, shells. Good history of lighthouse. Walk up to light - beautiful views of sea. Worth the visit.

This lighthouse is itself a fine example and worth the small... 更多

What makes this place special is the huge point of rocks you can walk. The geological striations are so apparent and the sea's power is so evident. The small lighthouse and you can walk... 更多
Pemaquid Point lighthouse is often featured on tourist books of Maine. Surf on the rocks is awe inspiring. Museum is interesting and two retired lobstermen give great explanations of the lighthouse operations and working on the water. Great for both kids and adults.
