Gate closed after Labor Day so it is a half mile walk that takes 10 minutes. Very nice sandy beach with some picnic tables and grills among the trees on the forest edge. Nice rock outcroppings of rocks on either side of the beach.

This was the low-key, un-crowded beach we were looking for. Even on a warm saturday, there was plenty of room to spread out and be socially-distant. Kids loved the calm water and the sand. Adults enjoyed walking on the paths and climbing the rocks. We enjoyed lunch on picnic benches and everything was very clean and relaxing. Beautiful view.

A regional go-to sandy beach. Good for picnicking and swimming in summer. There are nice rocky headlands to explore on either side of the beach and good tidepools at low tide..

This Beach happens to be very close to relatives who encouraged us to visit it with our grandson, who loved the sandy beach! He climbed the rocks looking for crabs in the little water pools, dug tunnels in the sand and couldn’t get enough of beach time! We were there for 3 hours and he would’ve stayed longer! There are restrooms there though we didn’t go in. It’s probably a good idea to bring some kind of shade protection as the beach is open and beautiful! The beach isn’t totally unknown as the parking lot was mostly full when we arrived around 11 AM. All in all, great ocean beach for kids & adults! The ocean views are exceptional! Make sure to take pictures! We happened to see a lobster boat at work. We went twice to this beach while in that area and look forward to going again!

The beach at Birch Point is somewhat small and doesn't have lifeguards or much for amenities. (no changing rooms and just pit toilets.) But that can be a good thing. You can use beach toys in the water like rafts and floats etc. without a lifeguard telling you you can't. You will probably want to go at low tide. There's not much beach left at high tide. Combine with a trip to Owl's Head Light. (no fee is collected there and there's a small beach.)
