Be ready to pay &8 per adult. Pack all your food chairs and towels and set out for an adventure. Beach is quiet and vast. Watch tides. You can walk out to islands. Pretty driftwood and shells. Vikings documented in area. Clean bathrooms and showers

Ever-changing due to massive tide and storm action. Long Beach when tide is out. You can walk out to Fox Island. But be careful to follow warning signs to ensure you don't get trapped for six hours on the island by the incoming tide. Dogs...More

Worth the extra drive from Portland. It's such a unique place with a gorgeous beach and cool rocks to explore during low time. Great views can be seen from those rocks and make for a fun day trip.

Wonderful off the beaten path on the coast of Maine. You can walk a great distance while enjoying the view, the ocean, and the smell of salt air
