The harshness of the Atlantic coastlines gives way to beautiful white sand beaches in Maine, and for the discerning beachgoer Maine offers incredible New England coastline. Ogunquit, which translates into “beautiful place by the sea” by the Abenaki tribe, lives up to its namesake with its 3.5 mile long beach framed sea grass and dunes, and is close to Ogunquit village for shopping and entertainment. Here you can stay at The Colonial Inn, a ten minute walk away from the famous Ogunquit beaches. Black Point Inn offers amazing coastal views, and was even voted by Yankee Magazine editors as having the best ocean views in Maine. For those who want to explore the bay, Newagen Seaside Inn offers rowboats that can be taken out to Boothbay Harbor. Maine may be an unconventional beach vacation destination, but it is sure to be a favorite!
