You have to pay to get in, $8 for an adult, $2 for Seniors. The beach is huge. You could easily spend all day walking on the beach.

The water is cold but the beach is beautiful and big and easy to walk. And you will be rewarded at the end with a private house and lighthouse to photograph or just admire. As the tide goes in and out the beach changes by...More

You won't hear about Popham Beach from many people, even once you get to Maine. I found it because of an old navigation system I had on a car. (Of course the the newer version of that car has a worse navigation system.) When I...More

It's a lot of money to spend if you only want to spend a couple of hours, but for a full day at the beach, this is a great spot. Jump in the river and float down to the sea! Beautiful views with islands and...More
