We walked along the rocky. pebbly beach finding beautiful rocks and small sculpted pieces of driftwood. In the woods above the mosquitoes were enjoying snacking on my delicate skin while my wife was bug free as they were all on me !! A lovely mid October day here at Owl's Head

This is a decent little beach in the area. It's scenic enough and has a good amount of sand. There are rocks surrounding the edges with a forest and some tables for picnics.Some grassy areas are available too if you can claim them before someone else does.

Birch Point Beach State Park is a hidden gem. We were there on October 1st, and there were some light sprinkles. Still, it is a gorgeous place to be even if it wasn't swimming weather--for just sitting or taking hikes around the place. Would have given it a 5x if the gates had been open, but after Labor Day, many... More

I am sure there are are some others, but this was the small, sandy beach that we enjoyed visiting on our trip. There are rocks on either side of the beach that are fun for climbing, and lots of people were there the day we visited (but not too many!). When the tide came in, it was warm enough for... More

We have been here over 10 times in our 30 years of coming to Maine. It's is something to do. Expecially if u like walking on the rocks. The beach is Shelly with cool things to find. No way would I go in the water. From rocks and shells to seaweed everywhere it's not for me. There are picnic benches... More

I can't say I would swim here, just because there is sand doesn't make it a beach. The area it self was pretty cool. We walked and explored the rocks, watched the waves and the brave people dipping their feet in the icy waters. It does cost money to enter I think it was $5 a person. We much preferred... More

Birch Point Beach State Park is only a half hour drive from our summer home so it's a great spot to take our grandchildren when they visit. There's the beach for playing in the sand and looking for shells and sea glass , the water for swimming and the rocks to climb on. At high tide there isn't much beach... More

I love to walk this beach early in the morning. Have been going here for sixty years. I am also fortunate to only live a couple of miles from here. Take your chairs, blankets and have a picnic. Very clean beach and park facilities. It is also handy to the Owl's Head Transportation Museum, a place you don't want to... More

We didn't know this beach existed until yesterday. Had made many drives north along Route 1. But never stopped here until we rented a place nearby. The beach is a pure New England beach. Rocky. Apparently, any temperature above 72 degrees is perfect for bikinis. Yes, it's a beach. Go. Enjoy the sun and surf.
