Summer fun with the family at one of Maine’s most beautiful beaches.
Nothing says summer like a day out with the family on a Maine beach. One of the most beautiful of all Maine beaches is located at Crescent Beach State Park. First opened to the public in 1966, this beach park has been a summer staple for residents and tourist alike. Located in beautiful Cape Elizabeth, the park is just a few miles from Portland, Maine and very easy to access. One of the most natural beach areas, Crescent beach is surrounded by lush wooded areas and beautiful sand dunes making it a nature lover’s paradise.
A summer family destination, Crescent Beach State Park has a friendly vibe. This amazing state park has tons of fun activities for the entire family to enjoy. Kayaking along the shore line is a great way to see the park and will allow you to explore the calm saltwater coves in the area. Bird lovers will be right at home at Crescent Beach because the area is full of different species that are great for watching.
Another activity that people love to do at Crescent Beach is walking and biking on one of the many trails the park has to offer. Many different kinds of wildlife can be spotted on the wooded trails, so remember to bring your camera. Fishing is also a fun activity that many visitors enjoy doing here. But remember to follow all state laws when fishing at Crescent Beach. Swimming and sun bathing is of course the main reasons many family flock to Crescent Beach. Swimming is a great way to cool off under the hot summer sun.
So, for some fun in the sun with your family this summer, why not visit one of Maine’s most treasured beaches? If you are looking for more natural beach experience and want to get away from those over developed touristy areas, Crescent Beach State Park is the place for you and your family.
