My son who is a student at U.M.M. discovered this gem of a beach on a exploration bike ride. When we went to visit him he showed us. Traveling down the narrow dirt road to the small parking area does not present what lies just beyond. After parking and taking a short trail the beach is revealed. thousands upon thousands... More

This is a great Hidden Treasure in Maine. Those of us that live in Maine know that is can be hard to find a quiet little spot that isn't crowded in the summer. This is it!!! For now at least. Be sure and take a light jacket. We were there the first weekend in August and as we carefully climbed... More

The rocks are lovely, and even better is the sound of the waves receding on them. Worth seeing and worth returning to.

The surf picks up the pebbles and polishes them smooth. It makes a cool sound. The beach seems about a mile stretch of a thick deposits of rocks and pebbles. The breakers are strong and with such loose stones I wouldn't swim there but it's fun to find so many interesting rocks. The rocks were diverse and smooth. I really... More

Have been here many times. It's a killer bicycle ride from Machias (not for the casual rider or children), or a scenic drive. The beach is unique and beautiful. You pull up to what looks like a big pile of stones - almost like a construction site. Walk over the pile and you're looking at a protected cove, standing on... More

If you like rock collecting, stop here. There are lots of lovely stones to pick up, but don't take too many--be selective. It's not named Jasper for nothing!

At first sight, we thought we had made a mistake, but what appeared to be a beach where a bull dozer had piled gravel everrywhere, turned out to be a beach covered with Jasper stones of all sizes, colors and shapes! Each "discovery" led to another and another. We had to tear ourselves away. The stones were beautifully rounded and... More

Took my grand-daughter to Jasper Beach for the 3rd time. She is 18 and she loves walking on the stones and looking for unusual ones. She comes from the city and enjoys the quiet of the beach and the sound of the stones in the waves. We spent an hour just walking around and taking some pictures. Very enjoyable!
