  • Great area. Lawn is covered in dog poop. Nice beach to walk
  • Not much of a beach really, which is why they call it "short sands". Maine has many more beautiful, sprawling, rugged, or rustic beaches but this one is conveniently located for access after York's Wild Kingdom. The fun downtown area with shops and restaurants made this worth the stop if you're in the area.
  • Great place to walk around. Great beach, great play ground area, great places to eat, great shops, deffinently worth going
  • Nice beach
