Long Sands Beach
Long Sands Beach follows along Coastal Rt. 1A for about 3 miles of gorgeous white sand, big waves and unparalleled views of the magnificent Atlantic Ocean.  You can even see the Nubble Lighthouse from the beach. Rent a raft and ride the waves, join the surfers in the "Surfing Only" area, take a long stroll in the shallow waves or just sit and soak up the summer sun.  There are take-out restaurants along the beach road and a surf shop for surf gear and rentals.  Metered parking is available along the beach.



York Harbor Beach
York Harbor Beach is a smaller, more secluded beach with gentle surf and
good tide pools.  Many of the local York folk prefer this beach. Limited 
permit parking is available from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Cape Neddick Beach
Cape Neddick Beach is on the Shore Road off Rt. 1A North.  This beach
is the best beach for tide pooling because when the tide is out you can walk
out to the point and find lots of treasures that are left in the sand.  Limited
permit parking is available from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
