Road Trip – 5 “Secret” Maine Beaches You Need To Visit
Even with the mandatory 14 day quarantine for out-of-staters, we'll soon see people flocking to Maine's beaches. And, for now, most beaches are limiting capacity. Unless you get up before dawn, this could make having that beach day a little more of a pain than it has been in the past.
What do you? Why not try one of the state's more out-of-the-way beaches?
One of the many benefits of living in a state that has as much coastline as Maine does is that we have many lesser known beaches. There are many Maine beaches that are overlooked, or completely unknown, by non-locals.
Thanks to Only In Your State, here's a breakdown of five of the state's more secluded beaches:
Roque Bluffs State Park - Near Machias, this beach also features six miles of trails to walk.
Seawall Beach - Located in Phippsburg, it does take a little effort to get to this secluded beach. You have to make a 1 mile hike through the Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area. On the plus side, this means there'll be fewer people on the beach.
Laudholm Beach - Located in Wells, it is a little bit of a drive, but it is worth it. To get there, go to the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve and follow the trails.
Birch Point State Park - A short drive from the Owls Head Transportation Museum, many non-locals overlook this beach. It features calming surf and a lot of sand.
Lamoine State Park - Located in Lamoine, one of the cool features of this beach is the fact that they allow camping. Yes! Like something out of a movie, you can actually camp right on the beach. On top of that, it is a short trip from Acadia National Park.
