Maine’s southern coast is home to classic beach communities, thirty dazzling miles of white sand, family resorts and authentic lobster shacks. Lighthouses dot the shore, their beacons of light beckoning visitors to come explore all that Maine’s Beaches Region has to offer.

Whether you’ve come to The Maine Beaches Region for recreation, relaxation, shopping, or to sample some of the world’s best seafood, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. In Kittery, one of Maine’s oldest settlements, you can stroll the cobblestone streets and take in the historic architecture, quaint pubs and ample antique shops. Ogunquit, an early 20th-century art colony is now a year-round resort town with a decidedly artsy bent. Visit the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, enjoy the boutiques, galleries and cafes in Perkins Cove and unwind at Ogunquit Beach.

Mainers refer to the Kennebunk and Kennebunkport regions as “the Kennebunks,” and visit them for their classic seaside charm and small town sense of community. Visitors to the Kennebunk region can take advantage of the area’s plentiful recreational options including fly-fishing on the Mousam River, numerous hiking and biking trails, or a ride on an authentic Maine lobster boat.

Maine’s Biddeford and Saco region offers affordable accommodations for Maine travelers, secluded and relaxing beaches, and family amusement parks.

The city of Sanford is a camper’s paradise, with many lakes surrounded by wooded areas to choose from.

Old Orchard Beach hosts seven miles of sandy beach, the Palace Playland oceanfront amusement park, a century-old Pier, and nightly entertainment. The area also boasts shopping, dining, golf, fishing, camping and saltwater marsh canoeing.

A trip to America’s oldest chartered city, York, is incomplete without a stop at the Nubble Lighthouse and its companion park. Or better yet, plan your trip in August to coincide with York Days featuring the lighting of the Nubble.

The Maine Beaches Region is an ideal destination for bird watchers, who flock to the salt marshes and estuaries of the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge in Wells to observe the migratory birds that touch down.

Visit The Maine Beaches Region for a taste of authentic New England beach culture, classic Maine hospitality, and natural beauty that spans the horizons.
