Not impressed with Wells beach . When high tide is in there is hardly anywhere to lay a blanket. It is rocky and crowded. Much prefer any of the other local beaches. Easily accessed on trolley during summer. Parking a nightmare during peak times

It's a nice walking beach -- at low tide, anyway! Has a few of your standard beachy gift shops and a few restaurants at the main entry to the beach.

It was wonderful to stand in the Atlantic Ocean in Maine in October and not have my feet freeze and fall off at the ankles. The shells were awesome and so was the experience of being on the beach!

We always go in early fall so the beach is not crowded. Nice views and this year we actually saw a seal come up on the beach! It was very cool as the seal seemed more than happy to have his picture taken

Parking lot does fill up on summer weekends and it is a long walk to the beach. Once you get there, it is really very nice. This year we actually saw a whale jump out of the water! The water is between 60-68 degrees and...More

This was an awesome trip! The weather was beautiful, the water was wet, and the views were wonderful. We were in Wells during the full moon-it was breathtaking!
