    BOCCE ON THE BEACH

    by KarenandCory Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bocce is a popular activity on Long Sands Beach. There's not enough space on Short Sands to sling your balls... (sorry, couldn't resist).

    What is Bocce? It's kind of like bowling on the beach.
    The goal is to get your Bocce ball as close as possible to the pallino, a smaller ball which is rolled first. The bocce coming closest to the pallino scores.

    Equipment: I don't own my own Bocce balls so I only play when my cousins bring their set.

    I'm not sure if you can buy Bocce balls in York Beach. Probably not since most of the stores are tourist oriented gift shops. So, find your own Bocce set or use different kinds of balls.

    Basketball

    There is a basketball court on Short Sands Beach. It is always being used. I assume you just have to be lucky enough to find it empty, or wait your turn. At the very least, you young teenage girls can go check out the boys!

    Equipment: Bring your own basketball.

    Short Sands Beach Fun

    Fun Floats

    You can rent floats right on Short Sands Beach near Fun o Rama. You can also rent umbrellas and chairs "At Your Own Risk" (giggle),
    I didn't see any prices listed but most likely worth it if you don't have your own.
