It is a lovely beach in a small and sleepy town in Southern Maine. Parking was convenient and the beach is clean and beautiful with the beautiful rocks and wildlife. I even saw a seal! We very much enjoyed our visit.

The scenery is spectacular. The beach offers great waves for playing in the water. Beach area for laying around and enjoying the sun and playing in the sand. There is also a picnic area. So many beaches but this one offers all of it.

Great beach to sun bathe, or walk in the sand and play in the water. Certain times the waves roll in and are so beautiful. Just sit and take in the view and water, and you are in another world.

We didn't spend a lot of time on the beach because it was rainy and cold but we did visit it one day and it was ok.

Wonderful beach, no matter what time if the year! We love to visit Maine in the fall. Sunrises are amazing to watch here.

Quiet beach in the fall and nice clean beach to walk. Parked at the main parking lot and walked both directions. There are alot of hotels and homes to rent in the area. Noticed a couple restaurants available.

A wonderful place for a walk and to take photos. Low tide is best of course but a high tide walk is invigorating. One of many nice beaches in the area.

Go! Walk the beach-visit at low tide and explore the rocks. Visit at high tide and just walk. Look for seals. Sit on the deck at the top during windy weather and watch the waves. Just a nice place.
