This is my favorite beach in Maine - terrific for long walks on the sand!!! It is also great for just laying in the sun or wading in the water and enjoying the waves. I have been coming to OOB for over 20 years.

Lots of things to see on the boardwalk. Rides for people with children. Lots of food and drink places. Not to mention the beach is right there! Beach and boardwalk were kept clean. Depending on when you go, there can be lots of people.

Very nice place to escape for the day or the weekend. I love how there are so many places to visit. I love the off season too. Always a blast.

Plenty of things to do for families, couples or just friends. OOB is safe & clean with 7 miles of white sand beaches.

Inexpensive winter getaway. What's to complain about when you're at the ocean? Stayed at the SeaCliff Motel. Oceanfront average room. Great location, jacuzzi tub, perfect spot.

OK.....I know it's common sense, it's Maine so the water is going to be colder than the Maryland/Delaware beaches we're accustomed to....but just HOW cold are we talking here? (last week of July).
