If you travel to Maine you should certainly visit the Nubble" Beautiful cannot adequately describe this place, where other then in Maine would you find scuba divers cleaning up after the slobs

Close drive from Long Sands beach. Worth the stop. Great view of light house and cool locale. Excellent place to relax and watch the ocean.

I could sit there all day and smell the ocean and look around at the scenery. It was so beautiful and the rocks were pretty easy to navigate to get to water's edge. It is lovely.

Warning to photographers - the lighthouse is under repairs and covered by scaffolding! But when it is not is is incredible! Such a unique setting - hopefully the repairs will be finished quickly because this is definitely one of my favorites!

We were told this is the most photographed lighthouse in Maine. So of course we had to see it. It is a scenic spot for sure. The rocky coast and small island with the lighthouse is a perfect representation of Maine. Unfortunately there was scaffolding...More

Yes, the scaffolding is still up but it only covers a portion of the site. It’s still worth visiting, but if you like taking lighthouse pictures more artistic than snapshots, then it may not be the best time to visit.
