This little Interesting beach is full of rocks, no sand very close to highway 92 below Machias port off highway 1. No overnight camping and nice to experience the tides and listening to the rocks wash with the tide.
We stopped here to have a picnic lunch and geocache on our way to Lubec for a couple of days of hiking. This beach reminds me of a beach that I went to in England many years ago - there was no sand! The pebbled beach is interesting and fun to just walk along and see the different stones that...
