It's such a great place in the morning only though with high tide and high waves so kids can use there boogie boards, but in the afternoon, the water has little to no waves. Tip for coming: come early for a good spot, and come during the morning.

Very nice beach and location. Looks so different now with all the commercial buildings/shops but should not deter from the nice water and great beaches.

and I mean the beach and the water! Being Maine, you don't expect the water to be warm but it was chilly,even in the summer! The beach has great sand and it's neat to see the French signs as well as English signs, almost like you are in a foreign country. Not a fan of cape cod and to me,... More

Pier is impressive, expansive beach, amusement park and fireworks weekly during the summer months. Many restaurants within walking distance from the beach. Live bands play at several restaurants overlooking the ocean. Trolley car available.

Husband and I went here via the offered Trolley Shuttle ($1each/each way) from the KOA where we stayed 4 nights. Trolley was excellent. Beach was charming and pretty and relaxing to walk. Pier was too crowded for me but interesting.

Great Parking near the pier costs from $10-20, but you'll get easy access to the beach, security for your car, and best of all, a bathroom! The pier is a must. They have a famous coke and hotdog for $.99 and a few... More
