The sandy beach combined with outcroppings which we could walk out to made this a perfect beach day. The tide roared up onto the rocks as we sat in the sunshine. In the distance were two lighthouses. I wished we could have gone out to...More

We build a driftwood fort, and visited the tidal pools. The beach is marvelous for running and going for walks.

Loved visiitng Popham Beach. It was a cool, slightly overcast day and the ocean was just like you picture it should be. I don't know if the tide was in or out, however, we walked quite away out to walk the edge for good distance.

Sand, sand, sand. The beach is more than 3 miles long. Shortly after the season the bath hose was open. We took our 2 year old grandson and he had a ball playing in the gentle waves and sandbars.

We are staying in this area for Memorial Day. I would like to do some fishing from the shore. Does anyone have any suggestions of where it might be good? I hear fishing for stripers is good.
