“Acadia on steroids”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

The Atlantic Coast trail which goes up and over Black Brook cove is breath takingly beautiful! Take each side trail and pause to enjoy all the sea and mountain vistas. You can make this hike longer if you are willing to pick your way across a cobble beach to continue your hike. What an amazing place!

“Best waves in the ocean!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

If you like boogy boarding or just jumping the waves then this is the beach for you. Hours of fun and warm water to boot!

“Family beach”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

This is a beach for families. The sea is shallow and therefore warm and safe for children. If you want to relax go to a different beach.

“Excellent Swimming”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

This lovely beach and green area is a great place for body surfing waves...be very careful of the undertow...the Brook section is a great place for children and adults to play in the brook as it flows out to the waves of the Ocean...on this side of the beach the waves are not as large and there is no undertow.
This is a great place to Picnic and there are outdoor fireplaces to cook.
There is also a cooking hut with tables and there is a swing set and sliding boards.

“Smelly and pretty”

Such good waves and scenery, great sand and swimming water. Although there was a mysterious sulfur waterfall abour 50 yards away — whats going on there?
