“Family Friendly and clean swimming and beach area....”
Review of Echo Lake Beach

Reviewed 16 July 2013

With family, we visited Echo Lake Beach. It was very clean and family friendly - even for my 20 month old grand daughter. The beach has changing rooms, bathrooms.. short walk from parking lot to beach. Go early, sometimes parking lot fills up per my son.

I just got back from Maine and my husband and i loved Echo Lake so much that we visited every day we were there. Clear water, with beautiful scenery and it is not that cold, it's very refreshing. Yet i only walked into Sanz beach

Wouldn't recommend it. Beach is small. Gets crowded pretty quickly. Water is warmer than Sand beach. If you have been to Sand Beach, not worth spending your time here.

Water is warmer than sand beach- hiked the beech cliff trail via Canada cliffs on way down then up to the summit of beech trail which was very strenuous and steep!

The views are spectacular. It is fantastic for kids because the water is not very deep. It also is a nice place to swim versus the cold Atlantic Ocean which to many may be a bit too cold.
