“Fun-O-Rama at York Beach is the BEST vintage arcade!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

Short Sands at York Beach has it all. Set up your chairs on the beach and let the kids play. Arcade, Playground, Basketball Court-- plenty of clean nice restaurants. The Union Bluff Pub is the BEST! Fun-O-Rama is like stepping back in time. Vintage games, Skee Ball & more! Great place to spend a day!

“Nice little beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

More parking than long sands, but come early, after 10am it's full. Easy walking access to the town for snacks and food.

“Great little beach.”

Although quite small, this is one of my favorite beaches. Love the view, the water, the boardwalk.

“arcade”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

It's okay. we like to go before and after the tourists. It would be nice if the arcade and some of the other stores were open for us locals. I don't like crowds

“Lovely Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Short Sands Beach is a very pleasant beach with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The concerts are a nice addition.

The newly added traffic patterns are still creating some problems in the area and vehicle drivers need to remember that this is a tourist area and that there are many walkers, joggers and bikers as well as cars, motorcycles and trucks. Extreme caution needs to be taken by the drivers of motorized vehicles.
