This beach is clean, I have been coming here for years and it is well maintained. I love walking first thing in the morning, beach is so peaceful. There is a great playground for little ones too.

The area surrounding Short Sands Beach in York, ME is sort of the family fun, nightlife center of the town. Make no mistake, this is a different planet from the honky-tonk, boardwalks of the Jersey Shore...or even Old Orchard Beach (a few miles north).
A beautiful community park is the scene of evening band concerts and perpetual frizzbee tossing. From the park benches you can see and hear the ocean. You can also keep an eye on your kids as the play barefoot in the grass. An obligatory frozen dessert is just a short stroll away. An area just removed from the waterfront provides a few modest "thrill" rides and similar attractions for those who simply must have some grit with their sand.

So convenient to the arcade and shops and food. Plus it is just the right size for a beach -- not too big or small. Parking can be hard but we just get there early. Have never tried the playground but like having the option. Lots of fun!

Short Sands is one of if not the best beach ever. Although the water has ice cubes in it, the place is great. We go at least once a year and love it. The easy walk to town is crazy close and has all you need to stay the day or night. Highly recommend Short Sand Beach and York overall...

Love visiting ME and especially my time spent at Short Sands. It is family oriented, food/restaurants, shopping, arcade, umbrella rental , etc. If you go during the busy summer season...get there early as parking could become an issue late morning.
