This beach is a treasure; you can spend the entire day and never be bored; lots to do, lots to explore; great rock climbing and tidepools. The picnic facilities are quaint and good. Sometimes we go there end of the day just to barbecue dinner; it is peaceful and there's always space.

Very nice, quiet, clean beach just 15 minutes south of Rockland Maine. We really enjoyed climbing on the rock outcroppings located on each end of the beach.

Very enjoyable, a picturesque beach tucked between a forest and ocean rocks. Fun to explore and hang out at for couples or kids. The water was a little cold but people were still enjoying themselves wading around. Water shoes or flip flops would be a good idea, lots of rocks and shells to step on.

First off clean bathrooms (pit toilets but clean) within a short walk. We brought young children and they had a blast climbing rocks, wading in the (freezing) water and exploring tidal pools. The sand is perfect for castle building. We got there early and had no problems with parking. Started filling up around 11 on a weekday but the lot... More

This was a wonderful setting to kick back and enjoy the spectacular Maine Mid-Coast. I very much appreciated the limited number of people on this beach.

Quiet, out of the way, with beautiful views! Our resort recommended this location for swimming in the ocean. I'm so glad we went, although it was rather difficult to find if one is not familiar with the area. Rt. 1 through me for a bit of a loop, as it winds through town in a round about sort of way.

This is a very pretty beach. No sunbathing/sandy beach, but there are rocks to lay/sit on. There are a couple trails you can take, too. There are a few picnic benches in the shade so you could make a day of it.

Ive been coming to this beach for 30 plus years and never had a bad experience. It's usually very clean and the people friendly. Its in a small harbor of sorts so you don't really have to worry about rough water if you plan on bringing your kids. There are also great tide pools to check out. Get there early... More

This is a fantastic day out with lots to do for families. There is a beach, woodland and of course the lighthouse which has open days when you can tour the lighthouse. You would have to check when the lighthouse is open but we were lucky enough to get inside and climb the ladder to the top where the views... More
