Wells Beach, Wells

With its soft sand and picturesque views, it comes as no surprise that both visitors and locals alike love Wells Beach. Enjoy a leisurely stroll, splash in the brisk waves, and watch for seals. Kids will enjoy this family-friendly seaside spot, where they have plenty of room for games and sandcastle-building. Bring along a picnic basket or pop into one of the nearby restaurants for some famous Maine lobster. Watch out for high tide, when the beach diminishs to half the size it is during low tide. Make Wells Beach a centerpiece of your Wells vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Wells online itinerary planner .

  • This place is great- any time of day or night and any time of year. Accessible from many locations from Ogunquit beach to parking areas in Wells.  more »
  • Dirty pool, people can only walk at the edge with their snow boots, boueux.on could be a shower there before entering into it because cold water. Rooms bed made one out of two... and this during 5 jours.pas enough kitchen utensils that we rent for plusieurs.la single bath / shower does not match the great bath of the site.. In short, we will not back that's for sure...

  • The least interesting of the beaches. The entrance is in a parking lot, smells like frying and at high tide, there is almost no beach. The environment much less beautiful than Ogunquit or Parson or Drake's island (my favorite).
