in the fall this is a great beach to walk as its quiet and peaceful and the view is great. Mostly others walking the beach or sitting in chairs on the beach reading just enjoying the fresh air. A great place to go a relax for the day
Pros- lots of area for sunbathers. Public bathrooms in the center. Lifeguards. Beautiful scenery and can see Nubble Light out on the point at Sohier Park. Cons: all metered parking along the beach. Advantage to stay close by and walk, since there is no lot. Lots of seaweed and it is really smelly on the ends so sunbath more in... 更多
York and York Beach have no pretentions. The beach, hotels. cottages, and restauranhts are terrific and truly offer something for everone.
Beautiful beach(about 1 mile long) with great views. Low tide provides an enormous area of fairly hard sand for activities such as :sand castle building, bacci ball,kite flying, looking for shells,etc.High tide provides much less beach area.Swimming available @ all times. Lifeguards are on duty 8:30am to 4;30 pm. Float rafts and umbrellas are available to rent. One bath house... 更多

Also, at high tide, most of the beach is underwater except for a small area near the bath house (rest... 更多
Of course you need to have somewhat low tide to have space to sit but I truly enjoyed this beach and my kids did too. They could body surf and they were excited about being able to go far in the water. As far I can see when high tide is there it is great to learn how to surf.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else! This is a family beach. When it's high tide there is little beach but it doesn't stop anyone from going.
