This beach is definitely one of a kind. The beach is a great place to comb for rocks and take some pictures. If you're a true nature lover and/or geologist this is for you. Otherwise, there's not much to do. And when I went there there were big, black spiders everywhere! So if you don't like spiders don't go there.

This beach is really cool. It is a beach made of jasper rocks and multiple other rocks. The entire beach is all stones, really smooth and fun to climb. If you are in Machias, maine make sure to see it.

You drive through Machiasport (a pretty amazing experience itself looking at herds of horses in an oceanfront field, wide open coves, old houses for sale that make you write a check just to get their view.) Turn down a dirt road with a Jasper Beach sign and suddenly you are confronted with a 20 foot high wall of black stones.... More

I have never seen a beach like this. Great quiet place to sit, relax, rock hunt. This great place to bring the family for a few hours to pick up rocks, watch the water. There is a great little working harbor nearby. Bucks Harbor Pier, It is great for getting pictures of lobster boats in harbor.

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.
