Burnt Coat Harbor Light is located on Swans Island at Hockamock Head, nearest to the town of Swans Island. The island can accessed via a ferry from Bass Harbor. The lighthouse grounds are open to the public from dawn to dusk, with two miles of trails and access to two beaches. The keeper’s house will open with regular hours toward the end of June. Burnt Coat Harbor is regarded as one of the most beautiful harbors in Maine, with the lighthouse on Hockamock Head adding to the quaintness.
