Beautiful beach, clean with some rocks but mostly sand. Great for swimming, sunbathing, hanging out with family and friends.

Great spot to watch the sunset and go for a swim. Something for everyone, trails, sandy beaches, rocks and ocean. Benches to rest tired bones. No facilities or drinking water.

Lobster Shack is at Two Lights on Cape Elizabeth, not far from the beach. Nothing commercial at the beach. I just bring a picnic with me and then go to an informal restaurant at the end of the day ...
