Off the beaten path. One of the best beaches in Maine. I walked for miles in this deserted paradise. Breathe taking views. Don’t forget your camera. An experience not to be missed. One of the best things to do in Maine.

Very nice beach, there are a couple islands that can be reached via a short walk at low tide, pay attention to the times. Only nit is it closes too early. I like beaches at night as I'm a photographer...
