This is our first time actually spending time over night here. We've come up a few times to spend a few hours. This is my new place to visit. We would definitely come back and stay up in the area again.

Very accessible, beautiful beach, pristine with great walking trails. It's kind of a hidden gem. Definitely a place to visit and swim.

Great family friendly beach between Old Orchard Beach and Camp Ellis. There are showers and toilets. This is a state run park so there is an entrance fee

The beach here is lovely. It's just about a mile and a half walk from Old Orchard and maybe another mile to OOB's Pier. No public restrooms.

If you are “walking in”, no. Bring a car and you will. Late in the afternoon is a good time for this.
