Portland Head Light is a historic lighthouse located in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, United States. It was first built in 1791 and has since been one of the most recognizable lighthouses in the country. The lighthouse sits on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and serves as a beacon for ships entering and departing Portland Harbor.

The Portland Head Light is an iconic symbol of the New England coast and is considered one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the country. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is still an active lighthouse, providing navigation guidance to mariners.

Visitors to Portland Head Light can tour the lighthouse grounds and museum, which features exhibits on the history of the lighthouse and its keepers. The museum is housed in the former keeper's quarters and is open seasonally to the public.
