Endless beach great for long walks. Crowded in peak season but very nice when the crowds aren't as bad.

A nice beach , a bit like Hampton but the businesses are run down and plain awful . Parking is impossible to find so drive up to Ogunquit .

I must see and experience - try in the off season for a quiet experience. If children, summer is a must

Some tacky houses along the street, but great sand, good waves, very clean, good people watching, easy access to food and drink. Parking cheap.

During the dead of summer getting a parking spot is not so easy. If you are lucky and find one, it is a beautiful beach that you can sit and relax even with many people being there.

The views around the light house are great, especially if you go during the sun set. There is a lot of people so parking can be scarce. It was nice just to sit and enjoy the view. There is a little shop you can go to get souvenirs close by as well.

We love to walk here. At low tide there can be almost 2 miles of beach. Because of "the Nubble and our beautiful Cape Neddick Lighthouse" there is an area where seaweed can collect but the town is usually very good about raking it up.

On a sunny day this is a great beach to bring the family. I also love running the full length of it a couple of times being that it is pretty flat area and has a side walk makes a morning run there safe as well as having a wonderful view.

Been coming to York Beach for 50 years. My kids and grandkids have grown up here in the summer. Very family friendly and clean. Wonderful beach to walk on or just swim, surf or sit in a beach chair and read.

Great place to walk in off season, especially if you enjoy dogs walking on the beach. Very different and crowds in summer. Classic beach!
