Shallows run out a long way, so youngsters are real safe. Remember, this IS the ocean, and it ain't warm even in September.

One of the prettier beaches in Maine.
Stay on the beach if you're able and eat fried food.
Pier is Honky Tonk but some people love it.

Great beach for those who like to play in the waves. Not great for young kids, beacuse of the strong current and deep water. Lots of options for take-away nearby. And also the amusement park is very close to and great for kids.

We had a really nice day at the beach. Go early (before 10 a.m.) to get a good spot in a parking lot. We paid $10 for all day parking - we were a block from the beach and two blocks from the pier. Bring a picnic lunch if possible - the food can be a little pricey. The beach was very clean. The arcade has the typical games and there are rides on the pier. We also played mini-golf, which was about 2 blocks from the pier. If you stay into the evening when the tide goes out you can walk pretty far out which was fun too.
