Nice Clean Beach, lifeguards, and restaurants nearby. A little hike to the bathrooms, but at least they have some nearby! Parking lots are available, a bit pricy to park for the day. Bring a umbrella to block the sun, and a thermal bathing suit since the water is COLD even in the middle of summer.

We went here in the off season and it was nice because it was not busy. I have been in the summer and it gets pretty crowded. But it is a clean, family friendly beach. A lot of rocks in the sand, though.

Wells Beach is a great place and if you'd like someplace equally as beautiful but much more quiet go to Drake's Island which is just north of Wells. Excellent beach and tons of quaint cottages and rental homes. It's a great place for small kids as well.

We love that the beach is right in front of Lafayette's Resort where we stay every year. It is very clean and beautiful. The only down side is that the beach is gone in front of Lafayette's when high tide comes in. :( Farther down though there is plenty of beach!
