Love this beach! Peaceful, relaxing, and it has its own food court. Restrooms also available. Enjoy!
A great laid-back community beach. It's a local spot and not aimed at tourists. No trinket vendors, no t-shirts, etc. Just a great view, gradual sloping entry perfect for young kids, great bay views. A place to slow down and enjoy the beauty!
I've lived in Maine for 14 years and Willard Beach is one of my favorite places. At high tide, there isn't much beach, but at low tide, the beach is spacious and the bay is much warmer. This beach is clean, there are life guards, a great snack shop and clean public restrooms. It's a locals beach so there are... More
I have been going to Willard Beach since i was a kid, i moved out of State about 15 or so years ago. But everytime i go back home, i am sure to go to Willard. And i take my kid there now as well. Very kid friendly (always has been) it's kept up well, bathrooms are clean (especially for... More
A small beach with changing room facilities, a small snack bar (during the summer season) a great jungle gym / slides for kids, and usually not too crowded, especially during the week. Oh yeah, and the water is as warm as it ever gets in Maine (which isn't very) and it's clean. This is a terrific family beach if you... More
As some others have written, this place is terrible. At times the beach is covered with smelly dried up seaweed made even worse by low tide. The friendly Mainers walking the beach may only smile and say hello. A place like this should be left to only those who know how to enjoy such treasures. More is not always better.
My kids' favorite beach! Willard has sand, sea, and best of all a brand new PlayGround right on the beach!! The surf is much lower than most other beaches making it great for young children. (If you are looking to swim and play in large cascading waves, head to a less sheltered beach.) It is a relatively small beach, making... More
This beach is little known--so, you can always find a place to spend the day. It has a snack bar, a lighthouse that you can walk out to and a beautiful point where you can see the islands of casco bay--truly a gem in the rough.
Willard Beach is not a great beach for swimming. The water is frigid! It is a beautiful scenic spot. The view of the harbor traffic and islands is wonderful. Free admission and good parking makes it a great picnic spot.
The beach is ok to get some sun at and some quiet time. But the water is rocky and half the time is too dirty to swim in (they told us that many times this past winter) too many cig butts in sand...not very kid friendly!
