Nice beach- Center and East sides. Plenty of parking in main lot. Two large restroom facilities with showers and changing rooms. Maintained by park personnel daily throughout the year.
Nice view of Pond Island Lighthouse from the waters edge. The beach is wide so it’s...More
Highly recommended by my dear friends.
Worth it even with flys! Luckily, they liked my husband more.
Nice beach, beautiful views, water temp doable.
Will bring bug spray next time. Worth it to return. Enjoyed visiting Fort Popham, too.

The sea gulls are kind of brazen so you need...More
Lovely big beach. Great walk over to an island at low tide on a sand bar. Nice size waves for kids to body surf but nice and shallow so felt quite safe even though there is no lifeguard. Food changing rooms and bathrooms etc.

My experience is if you are not in the lot by 11:00 AM ,you will have to park on the shoulder of the road and that's a long haul to the beach !The lot is not so big .So get there early and it is still a long walk to the water when you are in the lot. It is a big beach ,wish you the best!
