Beautiful and clean beach. Went for a walk at night and felt very secure. Went for a walk the next day and it was already getting crowded. So if you want a good spot get there before 8:30 a.m.

Very clean beach. It was enjoyable but never got in the water past my knees...it was freezing and we were there in the middle of July when the weather was hot. We could not believe how cold it was. The kids used their boogie boards and had a blast. The 4th of July fireworks were quite something to see. There... More

This is a great beach, as long as you stay on the beach. The water here is ICY cold. Too bracing to enjoy a swim. Go out up to your knees and you get used to it. But every wave that crashes into your body is like a ice plunge. The hotel desk clerk says it doesn't ever get much... More

Nice place to walk and see surf, didn't have time to swim as was a stop over. Beach was clean (some cig butts), was well patrolled, Is a great place to enjoy the ocean, sun and sand and be close to hotels and food and the amusements.

Beach is clean and fairly quiet. Relaxing ...... Shopping gives many Maine products along with the usual souveneir shops. Pleasant people in the town.

Always clean and nice beach for the kids. Horseflies were wicked bad in July 2014. Hopefully they do something about that.

Every year my husband and I visit OOB with my 3 adult children, their friends and family as well as my daughter in-law's aunts, uncles and cousins. We are a huge group. There is so much to do from the amusement park to all the stores that stay open really late downtown. There are also restaurants and a pretty great... More

We loved stopping here along the Maine coast. The amusement park, pier and beach brought back fond memories of our younger years.

Nice break up of trip down from Bar Harbor. Fun atmosphere at coney island type of rides and games. One big turnoff was an attempt to be charged 50 for use of rest room on pier. There are public FREE restrooms about 1000 feet away.

I absolutely enjoyed the entire stay at Old Orchard beach. It reminded me of trips to the beach when i was younger with the pier and the amusement park right on the ocean. It is really a treasure as most places have slowly began to rid themselves of piers and amusement parks. It is like a trip back in time... More
