Birch Point State Park used to be Lucia Beach

The most beautiful beach in Midcoast Maine! Mostly white sand bordered by huge granite rocks which are great for swiftly walking across for a great workout!

We took little Dougal (Boston/Beagle) for a walk along the shore which he always enjoys - chasing crabs and playing in rock pools. The mosquitos that always enjoy munching on me were of course out in force again and again my wife Deb wasn't bothered by them as they were all hovering around me. Great place to spend a few...

This is such a beautiful area, to have lunch, sit and enjoy the view, or play in the water. We launched kayaks from this area many times and were never disappointed. Going in late August you miss a lot of the crowds. The only downside is the park "closes" at Labor Day. You can still park outside the gate and... More

We didn't go in the summer, so I can't speak for crowded times, but in the fall is it quiet and serene. Lovely pines dot the shoreline around you, rocks abound, and if you are looking for a nice stretch of shore to walk on, this could fit the bill. My other recommendation would be farther south in Cape Elizabeth... More

This little gem of a state park has a nice size beach, surrounded by pine trees and great big rocks for climbing and exploring. There are also some hiking paths. The parking lot is good and payment is on the honor system. It's just a relaxing little spot.

This beach is a treasure; you can spend the entire day and never be bored; lots to do, lots to explore; great rock climbing and tidepools. The picnic facilities are quaint and good. Sometimes we go there end of the day just to barbecue dinner; it is peaceful and there's always space.

Very nice, quiet, clean beach just 15 minutes south of Rockland Maine. We really enjoyed climbing on the rock outcroppings located on each end of the beach.

Very enjoyable, a picturesque beach tucked between a forest and ocean rocks. Fun to explore and hang out at for couples or kids. The water was a little cold but people were still enjoying themselves wading around. Water shoes or flip flops would be a good idea, lots of rocks and shells to step on.

First off clean bathrooms (pit toilets but clean) within a short walk. We brought young children and they had a blast climbing rocks, wading in the (freezing) water and exploring tidal pools. The sand is perfect for castle building. We got there early and had no problems with parking. Started filling up around 11 on a weekday but the lot... More
