Cape Neddick - Nubble Lighthouse

Location: Cape Neddick, ME
Phone Number: (207) 363-1040
Website: http://nubblelight.org/

The Nubble Light House has one rich history in the Maine Coast (which has a reputation for historic lighthouses numbering about 60 dotting its coastline) but at present is not accessible to visitors. The Nubble light House is a major stop for people who go on a tour of Maine in General and southern main in Particular. The best place to view the Lighthouse is at the nearby Sohier State Park where parking is free. Built in 1879, Cape Neddick is the southernmost of Maine's many lighthouses. It is also called Nubble Light, referring to the barren rocky island (Nubble) on which it sits, just off shore. The 41-foot tower is constructed of cast iron plates lined with brick. Cape Neddick's fourth-order lens flashes red every six seconds and is visible for 13 miles.The Nubble Light has probably appeared on more postcards, calendars, and other souvenirs than any other New England lighthouse.

It is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world and is a popular spot for residents and visitors alike. It has a small park with benches that make it a peaceful place to rest and reflect.

Also known as Passaconaway Beach, this small sandy beach area near the mouth of Cape Neddick Harbor is popular with local residents. Low tide here is a great time for you to explore when the receding ocean waters reveal the sand, rocks, and tidal pools.

There is limited parking along Shore Rd and River Rd, but if you can find a place to leave your vehicle it is worth the trouble! The surf is calm and at low tide, you can access a large sandbar. This is an absolutely perfect place for kayaking. Take a leisurely trip to the Cape Neddick River or, for the more adventurous paddlers, venture out into the Atlantic Ocean and paddle over to Short Sands Beach or Nubble Light with ease. Camping, dining, and groceries are within walking distance. The beach has no lifeguards, restrooms or other facilities.
