Loved walking out to the jetty and we do it during all 4 seasons. Pleasant sitting on the far side on the rocks watching the lobster boats.

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

The Spring Point Ledge Light is accessed through the Southern Maine Community College which is located on the old Fort Preble. We drove through the college campus to the shore. Parking was extremely limited and mostly by permit. It was a wet and wild day...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.

I took my 6 month old daughter out to this in a carry sling. Some of the gaps are rather large but I'm tall and did it no issues. There are plenty of stones so even shorter people should cross ok. You can't go in...More

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.

This place was recommended by a friend and since I enjoyed Rockland Breakwater I thought I would try this walk. Not as far of a walk but still worth it. Beautiful view at the end and I thoroughly enjoyed the little beach at the beginning...More
