Did not stay more than 40 minutes. Was so crowded. Lots of families/teens. Hoped to walk down pier for better view but it's lined with shops and vendors. Can't get to sides.

Enjoy spending time at the cove at Pine Point-great sunsets and sunrises, especially with the small boats anchored there. Around the corner... More

Old Orchard Beach is a great family beach. The beach is clean and it isn't rocky. It does get crowded, but I've never had a problem finding a spot. There are many things to do in the area.

The whole East Coast was beautiful! Love running on the beach, walking downtown, and just relaxing around.

The beach does get crowded but if you walk far enough you will find a free spot. It is adjacent to the OOB Pier which has plenty of family fun! The beach is a little steeper than most in many spots.
