Tips

  • Perfect place to relax! Just sit down and enjoy the sound of the water hitting the rocks and the smooth wind blowing on you to make feel at ease!
  • OK with dogs during low tide. High tide too many dogs. Bug Light is so much bigger, brighter, with more parking
  • Very limited parking, as this is a neighborhood beach, quite small, and near both Portland Headlight and the former GE facility for manufacturing, which Jack Welch closed. Coast Guard station nearby.
  • Make sure you make it up to the fishing shacks to get the view of Portland Head Light
  • its great here
  • This is a little gem of a spot. Peaceful, clean, soft sand, nice view, not too crowded
  • Sunset views!
  • There's a playground here if the kids need a break from the water
  • Very nice place to go for a walk and sit and listen to music of the ocean
  • Time for the return of people digging their toes in the sand without worry. Nothing like a clean sandbox
  • Sadly some people ignore the rules and bring Dogs to the beach when they shouldn't.
  • Park on SMCC campus in lot B to get closer to the beach.
  • Great dog friendly beach!
  • The light here in the evening just before sunset is really awesome. Great time to come down, walk the beach and look out at the bay.
  • Nice quiet kid-friendly beach. Would be nicer if everyone followed dog rules and times
  • love taking the puppy here - dogs are allowed off leash after 7pm April-September and anytime after that!
