Stopped for a couple photos after drinks at the Ramp bar and grill. Beautiful location with a couple nice restaurants nearby. Decent parking, not great.

You can see the Lighthouse from in front of the Pier 77 Restaurant. What a beautiful view especially when the sun is setting. It is a not to miss site. Just beautiful!

Rent a kayak and head out! This lighthouse and its keeper are a delight. The harbor is beautiful - you do have to provide your own transportation out to the island.

We drove out boat up and walked around the grounds. The lighthouse keeper was very friendly and gave us recommendations of local fare. Great trip!

Right at the end of a road in Kennebunkort is a rocky landing. Across the sea is Goat Island. It looks lonely and desolate.

You can go straight up to this light house - touch it - take photos! We were not able to go inside but it is a beauty! There are great views in this area.

We paddled boarder and canoed out to Goat Island Lighthouse. Beautiful views from the island. You can go up into the lighthouse for stunning views of Cape Porpoise harbor and the surrounding islands. You can walk around on the island. Nice place for a picnic!
