Make Your Summer Complete With This One-Of-A-Kind Maine Beach Trip

Beach trips during the summer in Maine are an obvious way to get the best of the state. And when we go through a string of days that are hot and sunny it’s almost a necessity. It might be too cold to actually swim for any extended period of time, but just being near the water is pretty great. Of course, with all our coastline, there’s certainly no shortage of places to go! This summer paddle trip in Maine offers a truly unique (and secret!) way to get to this popular beach.

The Spurwink River put-in spot is located on Route 77. The boat launch is right beside the bridge over the river. The route is about 4 miles round trip, but if you plan ahead you could have a friend park at Higgins Beach and load up your gear at the end. Make sure to follow the tides for the easiest time paddling. You can check them out here. Address: Route 77, Cape Elizabeth, ME 04107.
