I had wanted to visit this light house since I was a kid. It did not disappoint. Perfect fall weather, almost empty of people. I is a wonderful spot, to walk, take pictures or just listen to the sounds of the water.

This place is picture perfect. The crisp looking LightHouse adds perfectly to the beauty and serenity of this place. You can go there and take a pic of yourself with the board saying "Eastern Most Point of USA".

Very scenic lighthouse in a very scenic location. Nice picnic areas and trails. You have to go to see the sunrise from this most eastern point in the US.

Spectacular views of Passamaquoddy Bay and the offshore islands. It is only a 10 minute drive from Lubec. There is a short 1 mile hike along the bluffs overlooking the coast. The State park is next door for additional hikes and activities.

Not on a routine basis, but there is a special open lighthouse day when that is possible and easily searched online. Nearby on Campobello Island in Canada is East Quoddy Light. You can walk to it only during low tide... More
