One of our favorite go-to places in the Northeast. We love the beach, and this one lets you walk for miles.

There is a small fee to enter the parking lot but in my opinion, it is well worth it. There is about three miles of beach if one likes to walk. Often one can find sand dollars. The sand is nicely textured for building sand castles, walking, or wading. It is seldom warm enough for swimming but often has enough... More

Fabulous beach and views. Modern, clean facilities. Excellent walking and climbing on 'island'. Just a small charge to park but worth it.

we went this year not knowing what to expect. We visited the fort 1st, then returned to park. Very nice beach,clean restrooms and shower facilities. Excellent for walking or riding horses.get there at low tide, so the islands can be accessed. Need to be careful to watch tides, as you could get stranded .will return next year

This beach is a gem! I have travelled to many top beaches in the world and this one holds a special place in my heart. The views are amazing, at low tide it seems to go on forever and you can walk around on the rocky island. You can bring your dog in the off season or a horse! loved... More

This is the widest beach I've ever seen. The expansive view is stunning, dotted with tiny islands and lighthouses one way and inland marshes the other. There is even an island to walk out to at low tide and a cute little store called Percy's with amazingly fresh lobster rolls and awesome staff. Definitely a place to stay for a... More

It's well worth the 30 minute drive from Bath to get here. Parking is limited so arrive early. It's a huge, beautiful, natural beach. The view and the available beach to explore change constantly as the tide comes and goes. It's amazing how it feels almost secluded even when the parking lot is full. There's so much space (except for... More

Huge beach, especially at low tide. For this area of Maine, it's surprising to find such a fine sand beach stretching out as far as we could go in the water. It's fun to walk out to the offshore islands at low tide. There are outside showers and 2 excellent bath houses (one for each side of the beach) with... More
