Beautiful beach, nice size, not too crowded. View from the beach is amazing, also viewing the beach from above.

We started our afternoon at Sand Beach. The lifeguard told us the water was 53 degrees. Don't know what 53 feels like? Imagine going in the water and after fifteen seconds you don't feel your feet. However our son went in for quick spurts and there were other people seemingly enjoying the deeper water.

Keep in mind there are moderately large waves (3 - 5' on the day we were there) so if you're not a swimmer or if you have small children, you have to be mindful. (Not sure how strong the undertoe is at Sand Beach.)

This beach is very popular and there was a considerable walk downhill (and, coincidentally, uphill on the way back). For all the people there and the full parking lot, everything appeared clean.

Being a very hot day and not being able to cool off and enjoy Maine's ocean water in June, we packed up and went to Echo Beach.

A nice little spot in Acadia NP to sit in the sand or get your feet in the ocean water. Changing rooms and foot wash in parking area. Fills up at busy times of the day/year.

A real sandy beach in Maine? Absolutely and surrounded by traditional rocky coastline. Very romantic.
