Even though it was a rainy day when we visited the Nubble Lighthouse, it was still very pretty, especially watching the waves crash against the shoreline. I plan to visit again on a more pleasant day.

We absolutely loved this place and it was free to the public. We hung out over an hour just taking it all in.

The York folks dod a great job by putting a park and the point with plenty of parking spaces and benches, get their while the sun goes down or right at sunrise for the best pictures!

Visited on a gorgeous day! Got some great photos. Parking here is a bit limited but we got a spot as someone was leaving. Most people don't stay too long because you can't actually get to the lighthouse unless you can leap 100 ft across...More

This is definitely worth the journey off of the Interstate to see. We were lucky to be there in the morning before it got crowded.

It is so pretty and charming but it is across a little inlet so can only be viewed from a distance. It is worth driving there though. Just be careful on the rocky coastline there.

A light that you are not able to touch it , but it was very charming. The rocks of the small island made this lighthouse very unique. Personally, I love this one, and Pemaquid Point lighthouse more than the Portland Head light.

We came from Oklahoma to mainly to see lighthouses. We took two boat tours and drove to many of them along the bay. This one by far was my favorite one. Like the others along the coast you end up driving through beach towns and...More

I looked around a bit and couldn't find an exact answer to that question. I would think they would come when the sun is down? Just a guess.

Don't think so. Again, you can't actually tour the lighthouse, but the grounds around it are cool too. It's probably a dusk to dawn type hours.

Theres not really a path. There are some benches scattered around, with a dirt/grass area to get to them. There are rocks as well that people sit on. I think a stroller should be fine to get to one of the benches.
