Great beach

Smallest beach are in Kennebunk but the waves don't beat you up. And there is a nice playground area for little ones. No food or retail.

A great place to relax, read or nap. Bring a chair and a drink and get some sun here with family, friends or solo

My kids loved this beach going up. Get there early for parking. You can even have a romantic dinner on the beach!

Rated one of the 10 best in the US. Safe beach for kids, super playground, and home of KBIA summer camp for kids. It's the vacation place in vacationland.
