this beach is awsome. the view is great. the sand is nice, the people are friendly. the only down side is that the water was cold. this beach is located about 30 miles south of portland on the 95. it's free to go to, just follow the signs off 95. it truly is a great beach
once there you can shop for "maine like gifts" (lobster thingys) you can also get a meal at the local dinner. it good but a little expencive
IF YOU LIKE MY TIP, PLEASE GIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS
The food is good. The services is fast and friendly. There's also a breathtaking view of the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge and Wells Harbor.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed everything. My friend tore into a lobster like it was her last meal. The chowder was very , very good. Menu includes lobster, steaks and cocktails.
While passing thru Cape Neddick (Route 1, York, Maine) on the way to Wells Beach, we were overcome with the smell of apple pies coming from where else: Cape Neddick's own Pie in the Sky!!!!!!!!!! Grammy never baked pies and muffins like these!!!! Those $2 cookies would sell for three times that in a Neiman's catalogue!!!!. Owners Nancy and John Sterns are Manhattan refugees. They sell 14,000 cookies and 7,000 pies a year. The apple pie with heart shaped topping was $23 and weighed 5 pounds!!!!
This was my second visit to Wells Beach, which calls itself the friendliest town in America. I've met nothing but friendly folks in this area. I absolutely love this quaint beachside community but it's like no beach in Fla., (where I'm from). On this day in July, the wind was blowing hard but it didn't keep anyone away from the water . Kites danced in the seabreeze and children played among the rocks in bare feet. It was cold enough to wear flannel! I bought a pink hoodie at one of the shops. I wear it every day to the pool and remember my day at Wells.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of this day has to be the couple sitting in lawn chairs at the base of a group of giant rocks. They were bundled up against the chill and reading. I couldn't help thinking how peaceful and content they looked but a little odd too...all covered up (socks and sweaters) at the beach! Later in the parking lot, I talked briefly to an elderly man who had his 'best friend' in the passenger seat of his truck; a cocker spaniel.
