WOW, is my luggage going to cost extra going home! We are staying about three miles from Jasper Beach. I love stones and collect stones and have stones all over our house. Then when we arrived here, I found out about this truly unique seaside setting. After seeing so much mud at low tide, it was nice to see these... More

I have been coming to Jasper Beach since the 1960s, and it really is one of my favorite places on the planet. The cove is always quiet, peaceful and oh so beautiful.And the rocks, of course, are amazing - and very comfortable for sitting or taking a nap. Most of the rocks really are jasper, and all are tumbled smooth... More

A short drive from Machias, Jasper Beach is unlike any other beach in the U.S. (In fact, the only other beach like it in the world, is in Japan). Getting to Jasper Beach can be tricky; even a lot of the locals don't know about it. But once you find the entrance, you drive on a narrow dirt road, right... More

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.
