I almost drove right past the sign it was so foggy. I could hear the fog horns in the distance. It felt closed off from the rest of the world. Quite eerie but really really cool. I don't know anything about rocks but they looked cool. I little trip from Machias but worth it when passing by.

I have always loved Jasper Beach. Every day there is different. I introduced my son to it on this trip downeast and he too loved it. The rocks are each unique and lovely with all sorts of variations. Watching the bay we can see fog walls come in or watch the working boats pass by. I have rarely seen very... More

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.

a great way to sit and enjoy the water while picking through the rocks, trying to find the perfect few to bring home!

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!
