The beach is located a short walk from the light. we strolled down and walked the beach and rocks. It does not offer a view back to the light, but there are several picnic tables and some nice views of the water.

When we want to go to the beach, we go to Lucia Beach also known as Birch Point Beach. There is both beach and rocky shore to explore. There are always friendly folks and yet it is never too crowed.

While staying in the Camden area, my wife commented that she would love to walk the beach somewhere along the coast. I did some quick searching and found this little park in a book on Maine travel. The author talked about this being out-of-the-way and...More
