My wife and I live locally and stay away May through August. Then visitors taper off and we often walk on the beach during the fall and winter.

Gawk and drive, just stay on the highway. Plenty of houses and beaches. Rocky shoreline is less than inviting. Just drive on, don’t stop.

Really nice for fresh air and a stroll, if you like walking that is. It was quiet when we were there but I can imagine in the height of the season it would be very busy.

A wonderfully pretty town, immaculately kept. First class! Totally ruined by traffic and bus load after bus load of pensioner tourism. Could not move for too many people. Crazy prices too.. such a shame..

Beautiful, wide open, white sand beach. Fabulous for a stroll, or to take a beach chair and sit and enjoy the beautiful views. I would give it a 5 star rating if only the water was warm enough to wade in! But it is spectacular...More

Very limited parking. Expansive beach. Benches located at various locations along the sidewalk facing the ocean. Great for walking or just sitting and enjoying the ocean scene.

You can't beat this beach for its long expanse of sand, and its magnificent views. Early morning and late afternoon bring plenty of dogs so be forewarned!

Beach disappears at high tide (water comes right up to the seawall) but water was surprisingly warm in late September. Fun to watch the surfers as tide comes in.

I don't think there are very many dog friendly beaches in season. Maine is our go to place off season because it does get very busy in the summer. I do know many people who rent homes through VRBO and have had great... More
