Acadia National Park – Sand Beach

Sand Beach, in Acadia National Park, Maine, is nestled in a small inlet between the granite mountains and rocky shores of Mount Desert Island. This gorgeous 290 yard long beach is one of the most popular points of interest on the island. The thousands of years of pounding surf created a beach that is largely comprised of unique sand of shell fragments.

Maine – A Day at Old Orchard Beach

For beautiful sandy beaches, great lobster and amazing seascapes, the Maine coastline is hard to beat – especially for families.

While it is crowded in summer, fans of 11.2km-long Old Orchard beach would have it no other way. Quiet sands fringe the outskirts, but Old Orchard is famed for its beachside amusement park and historic pier.
