This Secluded Beach In Maine Might Just Be Your New Favorite Swimming Spot

Of all the states in New England, Maine is not one that leaves people scratching their heads about where to take a dip. With more coastline than California (true story!) and plenty of lakes and rivers, if the temps get hot there’s always somewhere to cool down. But that doesn’t mean each one is perfect. Some can get so busy that visitors drive to find it only to turn around when there’s no place to lay their towel. This year, head to the beach we’re featuring here. It’s never empty, but it is a bit off-the-beaten-path which adds to its beauty.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
