The Maine Beaches

The Maine Beaches region, an hour north of Boston and south of Portland, stretches from Kittery to Old Orchard Beach and boasts 30+ miles of dazzling white sand.  No matter what type of beach you seek, from boisterous and family filled within walking distance of arcades, penny candy and homemade ice cream, to quiet, scenic coves surrounded by dune grass and tidal marshes, you’ll find your perfect spot here. 

The Maine Beaches region hosts a variety of sporting events including beach volleyball, cycling events, fishing tournaments, golf tournaments and new in 2012, a REV3 Triathlon in Old Orchard Beach. In addition to events, the Maine Beaches region is also home to the recently renovated Old Orchard Beach Ballpark, Sanford Mainers and Raging Tide baseball teams.  Whether you come to cheer on your team or athlete for a day or a week, you’ll find a wide range of lodging, dining and playing options for your stay here. 

The Maine Beaches…we’re closer than you think!
