The Journey To Reach This Beautiful Maine Beach Is As Pretty As The Destination

It’s widely known that Maine has some of the most gorgeous beaches in the country. Soaring granite cliffs lined with lush stands of evergreen and distant islands shimmering against the sea, make our rugged coast truly a sight to see.

Out of our 3,478 miles of coastline, Seawall Beach might just be my favorite beach of all. It is a pristine stretch of sand secreted away on the Phippsburg Peninsula, between the Morse and Sprague River outlets, only accessible via a two-mile hike through the beautiful Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area. This gentle, if not lengthy, hike climbs 177 feet up paved or packed gravel paths to the top of Morse Mountain, where you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the beach and marshland below. It makes me wonder if whoever first uttered “Half the journey is getting there,” was talking about Maine.
