Fodor's Expert Review Nubble Light

York Beach Historic District/Site Fodor's Choice

On a small island just off the tip of the cape in York Beach jutting dramatically into the Atlantic Ocean between Long Sands Beach and Short Sands Beach, Nubble Light is one of the most photographed lighthouses on the globe. Direct access is prohibited, but the small Sohier Park right across from the light has parking, historical placards, benches, and a seasonal information center that shares the 1879 light's history.
