As a landscape photographer's wife, I am often called upon to be at a location early in the morning, but watching the sun come up over the water, with the wind blowing the waves and the lobster fishermen heading out to sea is absolutely a wonderful way to start your day.

We took the kids here for their first Atlantic lighthouse experience and we weren’t disappointed. Easy access down to the ocean for pictures. Small museum to the side of the lighthouse. Only a couple people can go up into the top at one time but worth the wait. Definitely recommend this place.

Pemaquid is the quintessential Maine lighthouse. It sits at the end of a craggy peninsula overlooking the thunderous Atlantic. If you are lucky, you can climb the light tower for an unforgettable view. Climb down the rocks to sit and watch the surf pound the rocky shore and wash your cares away.

This is a wonderful lighthouse to visit. It was a sunny day when we were here and the views were great. Wear comfortable shoes and climb to the top of the lighthouse. The keeper gave us lots of information of the area and other lighthouses to visit.

Fantastic spot at sunset. We took some amazing pictures here. Didn't visit the lighthouse (weren't intrested) but the surroundings are really beatiful.

this was a nice visit, but the lighthouse was closed because the keeper had an appointment elsewhere. it became busy when the keeper was due back, and we had to leave. without a lighthouse climb, the visit was less impressive. no discount on entry. no gift shop that I could find.

at least the drive there along the coast was nice.

You definitely want to add this to your list of "must see" lighthouses. Very easy to find, and I believe it is the light house depicted on the Maine State Quarter. The ocean view is also incredible. It is very busy, so it is hard to get pictures without people you don't know photo bombing you, so arrive early!

Drove out from Portland to actually go inside the lighthouse but it did not open at 9:00 like the website indicated. Loved the Oceanside views and unique rock formations, but disappointed we were not able to go inside.

Very unique setting and didn’t realize at first this was the lighthouse on the back of the main quarter. Worth a stop for sure. I believe it was $3 per person to get in. Unique granite rocks at the base of the lighthouse with water crashing over them for a very relaxing place to sit and take it all in.

If you have time to wait, you can go up in the lighthouse. Spiral staircase with 30 stairs but worth the trip up for the views and to see inside the actual LED light they now use. Free to go up and they except donations. Very friendly staff.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse was such a neat place to visit! There is a neat little museum with a lot of history on not just the lighthouse, but lighthouses in general, the types of lenses, etc. It was fascinating, and there are volunteers on site who are more than happy to share their knowledge of the lighthouse, the area, and have lots of stories to share. This is also one of very few lighthouses that you can actually go up in! It is free, though they do accept donations. Be prepared to wait, though. It isn't very high, but the views are absolutely amazing, and it's just a neat experience. They are also very proud to share that this is the lighthouse chosen to be featured on the Maine state quarter! The grounds around the lighthouse are beautiful, as are the views along the coast. (You can also stay in the keeper's house!) We really enjoyed visiting here.
