Maine Lighthouse Directory
With 65 historical lighthouses still standing and spread out along 5,000 miles of coastline, inlets and islands, Maine is commonly referred to as "The Lighthouse State." These lighthouses have acted as beacons of light for sailors for hundreds of years, guiding sailors and fishermen safely in to harbors along the rocky Maine coastline. Today, lighthouses are an important part of Maine's history and are popular tourist attractions.
Although many Maine lighthouses are not accessible on land, lighthouse boat tours are an ideal way to see these attractions and get the best photographs. Some Lighthouses have museums on their oceanfront grounds that offer insight to the Light's rich history of lighthouse keeping, while other Lighthouses are now quaint inns or part of large state park grounds.
