  • Fairly nice small beach. The rocks adjacent to the beach are pretty cool. If you are close by, its a good place to go, secluded, good to play with the kids. Do not travel far for this one. The southern beaches in Maine are bigger and more oceany.
  • Great beach if you're looking for something not crowded in the summer. Very peaceful and a great place for taking photos. We saw a bald eagle and several loons (among the other "regular" wildlife) in the short time that we were there. A note though: unlike many state parks which are open 24 hours even though they say they "close" at a certain time, Birch Point has a gate across its entrance which is locked from around 7pm at night to 9am in the morning when it reopens.
  • Great, little beach. Lots of rocks to explore or sand to relax on. Don't forget cash to pay for the parking.
  • Beautiful view and relaxing place. I love spent my morning at the park, fresh air and clean place.
  • One of my favorite Maine Beaches nestled in the woods
