Lots of people sitting on the beach and in the water. Our oldest dog has a thick coat and loved the coolness of the water. We couldn't keep her out even when the tide went out.

A group of photographers visited this beach 4 years ago, and all knew we wanted to go again. So happy the parking has expanded and it is as lovely as it was when we were there before. Fog made it very mysterious, and the sound...More

We were told to visit this beach by the owners of Swamp Yankee BBQ. Glad we took their advice! This beach is one of two like it in the world. Very cool to see all the smooth rocks piled up in waves on the beach....More

Best way to get here is to head east on 92, which if coming north on US 1, turn right onto 92 just before crossing the river in town. It is an easy, but a bit twisty turny road 10 miles to the beach. Be...More

This is a tumbled stone beach. Wear proper shoes. Swimming isn't allowed, but you don't come here for that. We spent a good hour just taking in the view and the quiet.

Gorgeous “beach” in a south facing cove. The fascinating part about this beach is that it is all rocks, no sand. From relatively large rocks down to pebbles, the waterfront is entirely rocks. Minimal waves but the ocean was definitely moving. Beautiful vistas of oceans,...More

Jasper Beach is just that, a beach comprised of millions of tumbled jasper stones that glisten in the sunlit. The sounds of the waves tumbling through the stones is hypnotic. Visit it once and you will never forget it. ***TIP: Tape the sound of the...More

I have fond memories of Jasper Beach from living in the area (Machiasport & Machias) while my father was stationed at the former Bucks Harbor Radar Station Air Force Base across from the entrance to the beach. (The beach is actually in Bucks Harbor, east...More

This really is a unique expereince! Dunes of stone and weathered rocks that make the beach were incredible! This is well off the beaten path but it is worth a visit for the serenity and natural wonder.

Who said it's okay to collect these rocks!!! This formation is a geologic wonder which is thousands of years old in its making. Every rock has been rolled thousands and thousands of times on this beach with its unique shape and geology. Removing rocks at...More

Yes, there isn’t much supervision going on. However, the extremely rocky nature of the ground could make it difficult for some dogs to get around.

No, but then I wasn't looking for it the day we were there. It was very gray & cold with intermittent misty rain, so not an ideal day for hunting for sea glass. There are lots of rocks, many polished smooth by the surf and... More
