“Step back in time”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Short Sands with it's amusement house and shopping feels very much like you just stepped back in time. The shops are touristy but the whole place has an old school charm. Love the Goldenrod taffy!

“Crowded but classic.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Better parking than Long Sands Beach and more interesting terrain. Be sure to bring quarters though.

“Short and Sweet”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Lots of fun to enjoy the little beach and walk all around the shops. If you have little ones the Park is a blast for them!

“Great little beach with lots to do”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Short Sands is a cove, so it's typically a little warmer than Long Sands. Parking is plentiful and there are bathrooms and food nearby. If you get tired of the sand, there is a huge playground for the kids, and you're right next to the touristy York Beach main drag for all your nicknacks.
