Discover Hidden Gem Christmas Cove in Maine 

Christmas Cove

Christmas Cove offers panoramic views and magnificent scenery, but it doesn’t offer much in the way of tourism. Nonetheless, there are quite a few things to do within an hour of the cove that allow visitors to experience all the best parts of Maine. 

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park

The lighthouse was built in 1827 and reconstructed in 1835 after damage from salt water. It became fully automated in 1934. The former keeper’s house is now the Fisherman Museum at Pemaquid and offers visitors a chance to see a slice of history with displays and artifacts. 

Explore Picturesque Boothbay Harbor

Boothbay Harbor has a rich history and so many fun things to do. You can spend time shopping at quaint boutiques, spend time on sandy beaches, and even make some new friends as you explore the town. 

Attend a Clam Bake on Cabbage Island

One tip we can offer is to come hungry. This Downeast tradition is delicious and the portions are generous. Come prepared to feast on fish chowder, lobsters, corn on the cob, potatoes, and more. Make sure to leave room for the tasty blueberry cake dessert too. 

Sail to Nearby Monhegan Island

The island can be reached from Boothbay Harbor and visitors can take daily round trips from Memorial Day to Colombus Day. The cruise is a great way to relax, take some excellent photos, and maybe even see a few seabirds.
