The Best Southern Maine Beaches

Maine BeachesSouthern Maine is known for its beautiful beaches. From white sands to rocky shores - and whether you want to swim, surf, or sunbathe - there’s a beach for everyone! Here are some of the best beaches in Southern Maine.

Scarborough Beach is one of the best swimming beaches. There are designated swimming areas with lifeguards because rip currents occur every day. Enjoy taking a walk on the trails and grab a bite to eat at the Shack.

Higgins Beach in Scarborough has some good waves and is a great spot for kayakers and surfers. Sunbathers enjoy relaxing on the beautiful sandy beaches.

Kennebunk Beach is a popular place for a nice oceanfront stroll or watching boats coming in and out of the marina. Or catch some nice waves for swimming and surfing.

Ogunquit Beach is a family friendly beach with gentle waves, flat sand, and easy access to The Marginal Way. This is one of the most beautiful stretches of peninsula beach in the U.S.

Old Orchard Beach features the famous Old Orchard Pier, an amusement park with lots of restaurants and entertainment. If you prefer a calmer setting, explore 7 miles of beautiful sand.

York has two distinct beaches. Short Sand Beach provides easy access to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. It has a large sandy playground, basketball courts, a gazebo and a large grassy area. Long Sand Beach features 2 miles of sand and great views of The Cape Neddick (Nubble) Lighthouse. This area is great for swimming, sunbathing, surfing, and volleyball.
