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

Loved this park. Great rock-hopping - especially at low tide. Too cold to swim for me but there were a few little kids playing in the shallows. Went twice - once at low tide and again just as the tide was starting to go out. Was enjoying the view so much that I didn't leave enough time to do any... More
