The way out to the light house is along flat huge blocks of granite - not for the faint of heart or someone with poor balance but a fun walk - not too far and you'll end up at the end of the jetty for some phenomenal views - great place for up close pictures of passing lobster boats.

This lighthouse offers a gorgeous view of Casco Bay! Go on a weekend when they are open for tours and you won't be sorry. Fascinating. The volunteer guides were great.

Walking out to Spring Point Light is a nice walk on a good day. It juts out about 2 tenths of a mile form the mainland and is an easy walk. Children should walk close with parents as the gaps in the rocks could swallow them. The views are stunning, especially when a cruise ship is leaving harbor.

Looking for a break while traveling North Found a suggestion that there 6 lighthouses in the Portland area that can be seen in 2 hours. 6 lighthouses are true. 2 hours are a stretch if you are interested. This was one of the 6. Can either be viewed from shore or from the causeway. Excellent view. You can see other... More

Small light house that can be seen from Shore but is not open to the public. The Bug Light House is just blocks North and you can walk right up to it.

Spring Point Ledge Light is another gorgeous lighthouse in Portland, ME. There is a parking lot nearby and a rock jetty to walk out to the lighthouse for a closer look. The day I was there, it was extremely cold and windy, so I took pictures from the shore. I would love to go back when it is a little... More

We took a tour of the area light houses with so many in the Portland and South Portland area. We thought this light house was interesting.

I am fortunate to live in the neighborhood near Spring Point Light. The plateau overlooking the ledge and lighthouse provides one of the most magical harbor and ocean views anywhere. And walking across the ledge to the lighthouse is always inspiring. Just watch your step. The nearby gift shop is well run and sells great gifts, many that are Maine-made,... More

We stopped here because we saw it on the map. It was nice. Not many amenities close by. Parking is somewhat limited. If you are looking for a place to be contemplative this is a good spot. Good views around and sounds will get you in the mood. A little treacherous walking out to the actual lighthouse.

Our first trip to see a lighthouse and we loved it. Rocks to the lighthouse were a little tricky. You have to watch your steps or you could fall in the bay. Not handicap or wheelchair accessible.
