The Amazing Sand Dollar Beach Every Mainer Will Want To Visit

With more coastline than California, it’s not surprising that Maine has some epic and glorious beaches. Not all of them are feet-friendly (they don’t call it a rocky coastline for nothing,) but the ones you can walk on feature the whitest, softest sand in New England. Laying around on the beach is a great way to spend the day, but if you’re the more curious type we bet you’re going to want to do some exploring. If this sounds like you, head to Long Sands Beach. You’ll find seashells, but you also just might find one of nature’s coolest creations – a sand dollar! And this might be the best beach for sand dollars in Maine.
