The midcoast proximity allows for easy day trips up and down the coast or inland to explore. The twin villages of Newcastle/Damariscotta sits at the gateway to the popular Pemaquid Peninsula, with the Pemaquid Beach, Pemaquid Lighthouse and plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy Maine seafood with a view.
The peninsula is dotted with beautiful little villages, shops and views around the bend. There’s a boat launch right in town and a place to rent kayaks. The River Tripper takes guests along the Damariscotta River and offers sunset cruises, oyster and Champagne, and an oyster education. The Oyster Festival draws crowds in the summer, but it’s the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest in October that draws thousands. The pumpkin boat regatta even makes national news! It’s a festival not to be missed.
The twin villages have a charming downtown vibe with wonderful restaurants, pubs, shops, galleries, coffee shops, bakeries, ice cream shops, and a vintage movie theater. And just steps off Coastal Route 1 (Atlantic Hwy) makes it a fantastic village off the busy main highway but on a popular peninsula with the lighthouse and beach that brings tourists in season but locals in off season.
The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park is located at the entrance to Muscongus Bay and Johns Bay, in the town of Bristol. The Town of Bristol purchased the park property from the Coast Guard in 1940 with the exception of the light tower. Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park is managed by the Bristol Parks Commission. It sits perched on grey granite high above the Atlantic.
