“Wonderful walking swimming sunning”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We go several times a year even if it is a ways away. A wonderful place to do all I said above. Our children love it and always take grandchildren no matter their age. From one on to 20!

“Sea air, sea birds, the ocean!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

For anyone who lives in a landlocked state like ours (given that we have a lake or two), this place is heaven!
It is just a huge stretch of sandy beach, with gorgeous views of the ocean.
There is a bathroom and changing room in the parking area.

“Lovely”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Best sand beach in the state of Maine. Summer visitors should not miss this place. No vendors or food service, an aspect we like--bring a picnic and stay all day.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is a wide, beautiful beach -- one of Maine's finest -- with all the convenient amenities. Only beware of the seagulls, who are known to grab sandwiches from your hands!

“Beach walk, wading, shell hunting and more....”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We are so happy we decided to check out Pophom SP! It was $6 a person, but we enjoyed our time so much that it we didn't mind. There were surfers out catching waves and people swimming. It is such a large beach that it wasn't crowded at all. If you enjoy nature, peaceful waves, and beaches you should stop here.
