We randomly stumbled upon this beach during a road trip and it was calm and beautiful, not too crowded. Something great to see in Maine if you’re passing by.

What a great place to take a leisurely stroll. "After hours" it is the perfect place to bring your people and dog friendly pooch. This goes without saying, really, but clean up after your dog - people will take notice and will take action. And...More

There is a wheelchair ramp and handicap parking at north /east end of the beach, by the Seaside Hotel. The sand is soft, but go at high tide when the water is close.
