Shoot with care
Take care on the 1-mile walk to the lighthouse over rocky breakwater. Wet granite gets slippery which combined with the wind requires caution.
About this spot
The Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse sits at the end of a granite breakwater that stretches 4,346 feet into Rockland Harbor. During the seawall's 18-year construction, a series of temporary lights and lanterns were placed to warn mariners. Construction of the breakwater was completed in 1900. The permanent lighthouse was finished in 1902. Maine is a photographer's paradise. This is a good stop while traveling up the coast.
