this was interesting to see, especially as it is a light house that is not as near to the water as most you would see. It is part of the museum and you cannot actually go into the light house.

Well worth the short trek up a hill to this scenic overview and iconic lighthouse. Benches for contemplative moments.

Take the hike up to the light and sit on the bench that overlooks the island. If you are up for an adventure, go after dark (take a flashlight) and watch the lighthouse beam circle overhead.

I have enjoyed visiting this lighthouse and having my picture taken on front of it. The lighthouse grounds are well taken off and maintained by the island residents.

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!
