Lovely beach. Finer sand than most Maine beaches. We arrived at 11:00 on a Friday and there was still plenty of parking. Clean changing area and bathrooms. When the tide is out you can walk up on the rocks. The water was Maine cold but...More

In season, go early or go late, even on a weekday, as the parking lot fills up and then you are out of luck. I didn't know there were such large or such nice beaches north of Portland! Great surf, nice sand and good facilities....More

Great for quiet beach visit except on Summer weekend. Large, Sandy beach with opportunity to walk out to a rocky island at low tide. Limited services (food, gas, etc.) but it is not a typical tourist beach. Parking goes quickly in the summer. Get there...More

Large beach. Clean restrooms. Somewhat limited parking. Come early on a hot day. Nice for walking. Good for families.

Stopped in over Memorial Day weekend. It is a sandy beach, which I'm told is rare in Maine. It was one of the largest beaches I've seen. I recommend stopping by.

We went one evening and it wasn't crowded, so parking was easy. Our sons enjoyed climbing the rocks. We can't wait to return next year.

Popham Beach State Park is a treasure, which is why you must get there early in order to get spot in the parking lot. If you arrive late and must park on the road, you are in for a long [!] walk through a salt...More

I love Popham. Great for kids with warm tidal pools and vast sandy beach. Only trouble is parking can be trouble on the hottest summer days. They have a big parking lot but it can be disappointing to drive the 1 1/2 hours to get...More

There are Changing rooms and restrooms. I'm not sure which restaurant you are talking about as far as walking distance.
