It was an absolutely beautiful day but Portland was experiencing Gale winds and freezing temperatures but I'm no quitter. Tide wasn't terribly high at all and the break wall is plenty wide enough we felt safe braving it with the wind knowing we could seek...More

It is very beautiful, specially if it is a beautiful day. It is easy to find, free and I would recommend to go on a sunny day. Ps: you have to walk on the rocks so make sure you have comfortable shoes.

This is such a lovely sight. The water was an amazing color and broke wonderfully on the boulders on the beach.

We were able to view this lighthouse from a distance while doing a tour of Portland. Very pretty little lighthouse. Would love to go back and walk out to it.

I love the ocean ! The light house was very accessible. The weather was perfect and winds friendly. I can sit by the ocean for hours. What a campus for a community college!! They must have little to no anxiety or depression.

The walk out to the lighthouse is a little tricky. The area has interesting structures unfortunately no plaques describing their history.

Nice little Lighthouse with a Rocky Ledge not far from the City. A great place to relax with a great view of the harbor. Parking is a bit limited but worth a visit.
