“It's Okay...”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Your typical Maine beach. Quiet and laid back. The real downside is the lack of hot women in bikinis. If that's what you're looking for head down to Hampton Beach. It gets more of the sleazy Masssachussetts crowd replete with greasy skin shimmering in the heat with gold chains & cigarettes everywhere!

“Spacious”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

There's a lot of large rocks and boulders directly below the parking lot at low tide but as you walk about 50 yards or so north, it's all sand, Plenty of the soft stuff at top and lots of packed, flat stuff great for walking/ jogging on. Can relax on the benches up top and even explore the shops in season. Even a place that sells ice cream other food and drink. Parking is free but limited.

I always enjoy Wells Beach, the area is less congested than the other area beaches and in my opinion, this beach is the best for enjoying a walk.

Love this beach!! Walked the beach and climbed the rocks in April. The beach is beautiful. The kids had fun climbing and walking on the rocks looking for crabs.
