Nice place for a walk with good views.

We got here about 5:00 in the evening and enjoyed watching the sky change as we walked around this area. The views were extensive and there were lots of happy dogs!

Free beach. A few activity are possible, as canoa and walk :) It's not huge, but with sand and a few shadow. After 5pm, it's also open for dogs. We've been lucky, as we've found a parking without fee.

Love going there to sit by the water and watch the sail boats and people painting. The scenery is beautiful.

I love coming here after work with the pup and taking a dip! After 5pm it pretty much becomes a dog park, which is great if you're there for yappy-hour. It's cleaner than expected for a city beach but still watch out for leftover food, glass, dead birds, etc.

This is a great beach for walking, reading, and bringing your dog(s). Off-season. It's quiet and has nice views. Walk briskly during winter.

Beach is smaller than we expected and we wanted to search for sea glass but we were too late in the day for it. Nice views and worth a quick stop which is all we had time for.

Beautiful views from one of Maine's lesser beaches. The East End Beach is loved by dogs and children. Most others think it's a little gross, but it's on the Peninsula, so it's hard to complain about a beach you can walk to in less than a mile.

Just passing by, this beach is interesting because the beach is all shells. It's not large, but is quiet and a nice place to relax.

We found this by chance but what a lovely place to just lay in the sand and enjoy the view. It was not at all crowded and had clean bathrooms and changing areas. We were able to walk from there to the promenade for drinks and dinner. (1.79 miles one way) Lots of folks with their.dogs playing in the water.

East End beach isn't the most scenic or beautiful beach in the world, but at night and during the off season, it turns into a fantastic dog friendly beach. during the season, after 5:00, dogs are allowed and it quickly turns into a party. People are pretty friendly and mostly have their dogs under control though there can still be... More
