Short Sands Beach is a gorgeous sandy beach tucked in its own little recess right on the rocky coast of Maine! The view of the ocean is awesome (literally) and the surf is low to moderate so anyone can enjoy it, whether wading, swimming, or casual bodyboarding or surfboarding. The beach itself is a fine sand mixed with a variety... 更多
We could walk here in three minutes from our hotel, this beach is right next to the Fun-o-Rama and a few gift shops & further along the walk, a playground, basketball hoop etc. Still, soft soft sand and far out Maine tides.

I also had visited this beach. It's in more of a downtown area, where there are restaurants (some of which are open very sporadically, although I did find a breakfast place, Sandy's Purple Palace which is in a small purple building and is a popular place with the locals-it was full when I went there), and some stores, and there... 更多

There is a small village which boasts some wonderful restaurants, shops, ice cream and the best taffy in the world---only steps away from the beach.

This beach is near a lot of stores, activities and restaurants. The beach is not a huge area but fun. The plus is metered parking right there in a lot. Parking can always be a challenge along the beach. There is a bathroom facility in the middle of the parking lot in front of the beach area.
This is a really great beach for families...there is a playground, basketball court, gazebo with concerts during the summer, lots of places to eat and to souvenir shop, a salon and spa ...a must to check out is York's famous Goldenrod since 1896, and watch salt water taffy being stretched...and Mom's be sure to get pampered at Euphoria.
Quite a bit of parking, more than Long Beach, but meters can be high. Nice bathroom facilities and outside showers and foot showers beachside. Very close to Funland and shops and restaurants. Wish I had more time there!
