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!

Have and will always love Long Sands Beach. The walks in the early morning at sunrise or in the afternoon are great! Also feels great to be out there in the winter! Just bundle up!

This is a near perfect walking beach. It can be especially beautiful early in the morning. But make sure the tide is at least halfway out. Walking at high tide -- no fun. No beach either. The surf can be impressive. Fun for surfers and fun for surfer-watchers. It a storm has passed by you might think about heading to... More

We were there Oct. 20 , after the busy season. Parking no problem. Almost no one there. I can see that at high tide, there is little dry sand, especially on the southern section. Nice firm sand for walking.

Beautiful beach that goes on for a very long time. Restaurants and hotels along the way. Easy parking. Enjoyed the walk on the beach on a foggy October day. Loved it

The York Beach area of Maine is one of our favorite spots to get away for long weekends. The town is relaxing. Sit on the beach and you can watch the surfers in the ocean all day. The water is cold but the beach is long and beautiful. Also perfect for long walks.
