The lighthouse is located on the west side of the entrance to Muscongus Bay, in New Harbor -Maine.Its height above water is 79 feet,with a range of 14nautical miles. Pemaquid Point, with its dramatic streaks of granite reaching to the sea, shaped by massive movements thousands of years ago, is a fascinating place to visit even without its pretty white lighthouse. The spot is one of the most frequently visited attractions of the Maine coast, receiving about 100,000 visitors each year.
The name “Pemaquid” is said to have had its origins in an Abenaki Indian word for “situated far out.”
