“Nice sand beach”
Review of Willard Beach

Willard Beach
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Unlike many other beaches along the Maine coast, this one is sandy, so it was very nice for a stroll with the dogs. There were several freighters passing, and the view of a number of islands makes it very scenic.

This is the best beach in every season. Summer picnics with kids. Fall walks at night (harvest moon is spectacular). Winter walks mid-day (no snow on the beach + lots of sun). Spring mornings walking from Scratch with a great cup of coffee. Love it!

This is a great beach. Beautiful in summer and winter. Views of Casco bay. Fine sand. A fantastic place to spend a summer day or go for a winter walk.

Located on picturesque Portland Harbor, this beach has fine white/gray sand. From the beach, you can see Spring Point Lighthouse, House Island, Southern Maine Community College, and Fort Gorges. You will find the water cool. There is a bathhouse and concession stand at the beach. Parking is limited. Use the Willow St parking lot. Within a quarter mile of the beach are eateries like Willard Scoops Ice Cream, Scratch Bakery. Just a little further away is South Portland House of Pizza, Red's Dairy Freeze, The Cookie Jar, Thai Taste, and the new Elsmere BBQ. How do I know. I live two block from Willard Beach!

Great uncrowded beach. It seems to be used primarily by the locals and not much by tourists like me. Nice beach to walk if you like to look for shells and beach glass.
