“Lots of Rocks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The beach is average. It has a lot of rocks and if the tide is in, you need to be careful not to hurt yourself. I'm not use to rocks, I'm use to Myrtle Beach and Ocean City (they have no rocks).
The ocean was very still, no waves.

“Wells Beach is a hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Visitors can actually see the ocean from the waterfront roadway that winds through the beachfront. Most restaurants are along Post Road area. Great place for sunset watching!

“Nature Does It Right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

A beautiful and VERY long beach, gentle waves and clean sand makes for a classic New England beach experience. Mother Nature should be proud.

“Nice Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I have been going to Wells Beach for years now, living only 2plus hours away it is a nice beach to drive to for the weekend or vacation. I do go to Florida beaches also and like to go down south because the water is warmer but for the northern beaches I love Maine. Wells beach is clean, and very nice for a walk to the jetty when the tide comes in....love to catch crabs, find starfish, with the grand kids along the rocks, if you get real lucky an occasional baby lobster! It seems you could walk forever along the beach. As for jumping into the water, well usually the temps are 50-60 degrees, that's the drawback for me.....too cold. We were there 4th of July weekend and there were lifeguards, which was nice. As for bathroom facilities, I don't believe there are any, we rent a house so that is not an issue for us. There are several public access paths to the beach, but not much parking. This area is a must visit while in Maine, beautiful beach areas.

“Very clean...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Very clean beautiful beach. If you enjoy walking a beach this one is very long, clean and an easy walk . Great swimming beach by the looks of those in the water. Only problem seems to be bathroom facilities and change rooms. Go prepared.
