The views are amazing. The sea was angry while we were there. Made for awesome viewing. We saw the Snow Owl which was fantastic

This is a very short drive if you are staying in York. It is a beautiful location and an interesting lighthouse with lots of history. The ocean and the waves are breathtaking especially if it is at all a windy day. Such a pretty spot...More

We visited after a storm and the waves were still high. It was very cool to see the Maine coastline, the waves and lighthouse in the background. Short and sweet visit.

Decided to take a ride to the beach and took a walk. Came upon this beautiful lighthouse. Nubble Lighthouse.

This is a one of a kind lighthouse as the mode of transport getting there is by a pulley for the lighthouse keeper(s) - not for the general public. Whether you visit this place on a sunny or overcast day there's something about the scenery.

We went on 3/3 just after a nor'easter with very high winds during a full moon. The surf was incredible! I could have stayed there all day watching the waves and the two story high sea spray when the waves hit the rocks.

Such an iconic, historic lighthouse, the most photographed in NE if not the world. It has an old-fashioned pulley system for the lighthouse keeper to go back and forth. There are several benches to sit on and soak in the gorgeous ocean and beach views....More

This is the most beautiful lighthouse on the east coast, in my opinion. I've visited it several times, but this time I got up to see where the sun rose in relation to the lighthouse. It was well worth getting up that early on vacation,...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.
