I guess that this beach is lovely on a summers day - a wide soft sand area - unfortunately we were on a Fall Foilage tour and the weather was awful! Could not really appreciate the benefit.

In late September, in Maine, on a beach? YES! What a great spot! Chaise lounges are on the beach for your use and the three mile space is great for "a walk along the beach" without crowds. Would love to come back here again

This beach has off street parking only, and I believe costs 20$ to park. Having said that, it is a great beach for taking a walk. Quiet and clean.

Parking is along the road, and you must have a parking permit which can be purchased at the general store. However, a parking permit is not required after 6pm. We arrived late in the afternoon just to take a walk along the water. The beach...More
