Location of South Portland

South Portland sits just south of Portland over the Casco Bay bridge. The bridge is subject to large boats passing beneath and rises and lowers as necessary. Willard Beach is one of the best known neighborhoods and very popular with families and dog owners for its easily accessible beach area. The area has numerous popular neighborhoods for home buyers of varying price points, one being Ferry Village near the Willard area (so named due to its history of ferry service going as far back as the 1600s).

Places of Interest

A summary of a few South Portland favorites:

Loved by beach goers, families, and dog owners, Willard is a wonderful spot to visit. It’s a narrow beach at high tide so be sure to check the tide schedule and dog schedule as hours are limited. You can grab a baked good or ice cream up the road and take a leisurely walk down to the waves. There is a free parking lot that fills up quickly in the summer and seasonal restrooms.

A small, artisan, neighborhood bakery on Preble St. about .25 mile walk from the Willard beach entrance. If you haven’t been, you’re in for a treat. Get there early for the best selection of baked goods. They also offer some market items and a full coffee bar.

Portland’s breakwater lighthouse built in 1875. The 8.78 acre park was the site of major shipbuilding activity during WWII and now is a lovely green space with walkways and expansive views of Portland Harbor and the skyline. 

A small lighthouse in the Portland Harbor first lit in 1897 to help watercraft safely navigate around the ledge upon which it sits. There is a 950 ft. breakwater that visitors can walk to reach the base of the lighthouse.

The Eastern Trail is a lovely scenic by-way for walkers and bikers. It meanders through forest and marshes and is both gravel and paved. The off-road portion of the trail runs for 22 miles from Bug Light in South Portland to Kennebunk. On-road, it reaches to Kittery.
