I was pleasantly surprised to find such a pretty spot close to home. Wish I'd known about it at the beginning of the summer. I'll be spending a lot of time there next year. The mile long beach is the prettiest part. The rest rooms were clean. Retired veterans get in free.

Wonderful tide pools and swimming along the tidal rivers. Very beautiful beaches, one is a mile long and the other 1/2 mile. Dog friendly as long as they are leashed.

Great view .... Not many sea shells .... Snack bar closed... Very pricey to get into park!!! There was not any green flys that bugged us.. Not busy beaches prob due to having to pay fee..

We relaxed and walked along the shore and the beach. Wish we had more time to meander through all the trails!

Well maintained and staffed, this is a top notch beach. The water was superb in mid August. We were able to swim for forty five minutes in the warm (for Maine) water. Right up there with Roque Bluffs on my list of Maine beaches.

Gorgeous beaches, easily walkable, uncrowded. Grab a picnic and head to the park, its a perfect way to spend a day on Georgetown Island! The only annoyance are the green headed flies, but they were not so bad in July. That may be the perfect month to visit!

This was my first stop on the first day of my trip to Maine. I heard the ocean before I saw it. Huge crashing waves. The sound was magical. There were 2 workers maintaining the grounds and they did quite well since it was very clean. I watched the boarders for a while. And then.... that was it. I planned... More

Two really nice beaches separated by large rock formation that the grandsons love playing on. Water pretty cold but tidal pools warm and fun. A lone seal came to within 12 or so feet from shore and entertained us for about 10 minutes. Grandkids loved it. Very scenic place, plenty of picnic tables, and very good bathroom and changing facilities.

I have been to this beach so many times but will review my last experience: I took my six daughters there in August 2014. There are two "places" to go at the beach "Giffords Head" and "Half Mile Beach". I prefer Half Mile Beach. **NOTE SNACK BAR CLOSED 2014** Couldn't believe it - there is nowhere to get food close...
