With more than 3500 miles of beautiful coastline and 4000 islands, Maine definitely has a beach just for you. Sandy or rocky, gentle or rugged, island or mainland, there is a stunning natural diversity here. Southern Maine is for long sandy stretches, the mid-coast boasts tidal pools and hidden coves, while the north has a more rough, unfiltered kind of beaches. Take a dip in the Atlantic waters, go surfing, picnic by the water, camp to the sound of the waves, try paddleboarding, or book an oceanfront vacation rental for spectacular views.
These are the best beaches in Maine for any kind of vacation.
