Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the afternoon at one of the most beautiful lighthouses on Earth. The red and white stripes are unforgettable. The view to the ocean is breathtaking.

Absolutely breathtaking. The water is beautiful, and the lighthouse is so cool. There was a couple picnic tables, so I would highly recommend just sitting for awhile for lunch and soaking it all in. I went on the short hiking trail to the left of...More

We visited the light house and it's a beauty! Lots of great photo opportunities with it in the background. Lots of interesting information inside. Beautiful Maine coastline with some nearby hiking which we enjoyed!

If you are in the area, you really should stop in and visit the iconic lighthouse with the stripes. And the view of the ocean appears limitless. We went on a day with few visitors and basically had the place to ourselves. We loved it.

West Quoddy light is one of those iconic images that one must see in person. Even in the fog the lighthouse and surrounding are breathtaking. There is a gravel walk to the left of the park that is nice but doesn't have any good ocean...More

I had wanted to visit this light house since I was a kid. It did not disappoint. Perfect fall weather, almost empty of people. I is a wonderful spot, to walk, take pictures or just listen to the sounds of the water.

Not on a routine basis, but there is a special open lighthouse day when that is possible and easily searched online. Nearby on Campobello Island in Canada is East Quoddy Light. You can walk to it only during low tide... More
