Maine’s coast is abounding with long stretches of beautiful beaches, to rugged coastline, and marinas and transient moorings if you are coming to Maine by boat. Maine has so many beautiful beaches, it would be hard to see all of them in one trip. Whether you prefer sunbathing on a beach recliner, surfing or stand up paddleboard, crashing through the waves on horseback, or walking along the beach in search of shells and beach glass, Maine beaches have something for everyone.
Among the more popular beach attractions in Maine is Old Orchard Beach.
