The view by the Monhegan Light is one of the most beautiful lighthouse views that I have ever seen. It high up a hill and gives you an obstructed of the entire Village Area as well as Ocean and other Islands. It is an easy hike and it is also a wonderful place to have a picnic or just plain...

Gives an insight to the lives of the light house keeper and his family, and also gives information on the fog horn keeper who was located just across the harbor on Mannana Island. Of the multiple visits to this museum it was the first time I actually paid any attention to the fog horn aspect. In any case, a must... More

Monhegan Light sits high on a hill overlooking the town. The view is great on one side of the island, and the light is a easy walk up from the wharf .

Day or night this is a great spot for amazing views. It is one of my favorite places to watch the sunset. But I also enjoy coming to sit up here mid day to get some great photographs.

We weren't able to view the inside or the museum, but the quaint lighthouse is beautiful, as is the view of the island and the ocean!

This is at the top of the hill and the terminus for several trails. There is also a museum with a $5 entrance fee. As one would expect for a lighthouse, the views are commanding and impressive. The village and the rest of the island are laid out before you. Plenty of places to sit and great place to eat... More

The view of Monhegan village, Manana island and the distant Camden Hills is beautiful from this great spot! There is a museum, which we did not explore, a small gift shop with some very nice collectibles, but the view is the big deal here. I love it!

We went to the lighthouse twice. Once in the afternoon and then went back the next day at sunrise. Beautiful!

We loved the visit to the lighthouse, and will be back when we can go inside! Can't wait to return! The climb is a road, but very steep. The views alone are with the effort.
