“Not a bad free public beach.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Great beach, I wouldn't reccomend to anyone with small children.There are some homeless people who seem to wander the beach but they were not bothering anyone.

“Dog Friendly Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

I live in Portland, so we find ourselves at East End Beach frequently. We love it because it's so close to the city and because it's dog friendly. During the summer (Mem-Labor Day) dogs are welcome before 9am and after 5pm. In the evenings there are lots of dogs there, so if you're looking for a quiet place to do some tanning, this is not your beach after 5pm. Outside of peak summer months dogs are welcome anytime. This is not a white sand beach- it's rocky in parts and also has a lot of large shells. The view is great and you can walk there from in town Portland.
