Pemaquid Lighthouse

  • If the coast of Maine would be a sky, the the lighthouses would be the stars and Pemaquid the sun! Great place to practice photography, learn about history or simply relax in nature!
  • Love coming here every time. Whether with a group or by yourself, listening to the ocean always relaxes the body and mind
  • This lighthouse is famous for the dramatic streaked granite cliffs that surround it. Pemaquid Point Light became the first lighthouse to ever appear on American currency when in 2003 its image appeare
  • Be sure to wear shoes to climb around on the rocks for some dramatic views!
  • At sunset take a photo of the rock pools looking back at the lighthouse
  • It is definitely time to go visit. I practically grew up in New England. I would recommend this place. beautiful vacation spot.
  • Beautiful grounds on which the lighthouse stands. A nice picnic area overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Enjoyed our visit!
  • One of the most spectacular scenes from the rocky bluff, with the rocks down to the sea, and the lighthouse above.
  • Fried clams, a must
  • Perhaps my favorite lighthouse in all of Maine because of its stunning setting. Pemaquid also offers a lighthouse museum/tour (seasonal). Parking fee, so bring some change. Restrooms on grounds.
  • So scenic, make sure you climb up the lighthouse.
  • Great place to spend a day. Stunning views. Nice park to picnic in, or hang out on the rocks. Not a bad view anywhere.
  • Absolutely beautiful, take a lunch, spend the day
  • Take the loop road walk for a one mile view of the surf
  • The diner is overpriced and REALLY small portions so try to eat before or in town prior to visiting
  • Be sure to make your way to the top of the light house. They only allow five at a time, but it's definitely worth the wait.
  • Wish I had the dough to own one of these gorgeous ocean front homes!
  • Beautiful Lighthouse, Picnic Tables, Rocky Ledges, Gift Shop, & Restrooms.
  • Great for old fashion picnics. If you're to explore the rocks be sure to bring your tevas.
  • See the lighthouse on the Maine state quarter.
