NUBBLE LIGHT

GPS Coordinates: Latitude: 43.165° Longitude: -70.5916°  

Cape Neddick is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. It stands high above the waves so that while it is only 41 feet tall, its red light flashes 88 feet above the ocean. It is constructed of cast iron plates lined inside with brick. Built in 1879, it is referred to as “Nubble Light” because of its location on the “Nubble,” a rocky island off the eastern end of Cape Neddick. Owned and maintained by the town of York, it can be viewed from Sohier Park or via a lighthouse cruise; there is no public access to the island.
