While much of the coast of Maine can be very rocky, the beach at Roque Bluffs (just about five miles from Machias) is beautiful. It's not a crowded place, but it's beautiful and peaceful...also sandy, and the view is absolutely fantastic. Can walk from one end of the beach to the other and get a good workout. There always seems to be such a refreshing breeze there on an otherwise sweltering day. Not to be forgotten are the local restaurants (in Machias) that know how to cook and prepare fresh seafood and fish, as well as serve homemade pies! Even the local hotel is situated right on the Machias River, which flows into the Atlantic. Many a bald eagle has been seen there! Machias is one of those rare places that still has its simplicity and beauty without all the hooplah. A must-visit to enjoy!
