Short Sands: One of Maine's Best Beaches

Article and Photo by Eric H.
Short Sands Beach, in York Beach, Maine, might be small in size at a quarter mile long, but comes up big as a perfect Maine family beach. Framed by the famous rocky Maine coast on one side and spectacular Victorian homes on the other side, the low-key Short Sands Beach seems like your own travel discovery (even with crowds as well as a bowling alley (!) and arcade at the beach. As well could be expected, the Maine ocean water at Short Sands Beach is chilly for swimming (warmest at the end of August), so many people choose to be perfectly content sunning on the soft sand, taking walks, and just breathing in the salt fresh air. There's also a charming gazebo where concerts take place, a playground, and lots of York Beach shops, restaurants and the York Kingdom zoo/amusement park all within a few minute's walk.

Sunsets at Short Sands Beach can be spectacular, giving this beloved southern Maine beach another endearing personality. Whatever the time of the day (or season) for that matter, Short Sands Beach represents the best of Maine ocean beaches.
