Very nice little beach. One end has beautiful rocks. Clams filled the beach during great morning walk. Oddly, the way this beach sits, one can enjoy watching sunsets and sun rises.

Lovely beach ... Fun, welcoming atmosphere .. Sand is not caribbean obviously, but still a nice way to spend the day relaxing. Later in the evening, you can bring your dog and socialize with other canine loving people. :)

Beautiful walking beach and was able to collect shells. Even though it was November it was worth going to the beach.

It was cold when we went but we did walk a little on the beach and then watched the waves come in. Very peaceful and a nice walkway and plenty of parking. Beautiful beach

Beautiful Downeaster beach with plenty of parking. We were here during offseason so I'm guessing parking might be a bugger during season. Had my dog on beach and he loved it, though the seagulls were not fond of my dog. Rocky outcropping for exploring, and nice views around the cove.

The water is very cold, but the beach is broad and flat. It would be perfect for games or sports on the beach.

One of the best beaches in southern Maine! Great for walking and people watching. Very relaxing. The parking price is a rip off so try to get a parking pass from your hotel or BnB if you can.
