York Beach Travel Guide

York Beach is a small village that is a part of the larger town of York in the state of Maine. York Beach is the home of the Long Sands Beach and Short Sands Beach, which are, just as their name states, long and short beaches. The villages here are all incorporated into the Cape Neddick area of Maine, a popular tourist destination. York Beach and the York area has long been known for trading, shipping, agriculture, and lumber, but are now better known for the relaxing vacations they provide to tourists.

Things to Do in York Beach

For beach fun visit the aforementioned Long Sands Beach and Short Sands Beach where plenty of beach activities await visitors. Have some fun on the shore, play beach volleyball, swim, snorkel, or opt to rent out kayaks, canoes, boats, and/or a jet ski. There are also some designated sea fishing tours that will take fishermen out on a boat.

Be sure to check out the famous landmarks and points of interests in York and its neighboring villages. One such landmark is the recently restored Nubble Lighthouse, which is now open for visitors. In the heart of York Beach is the York Wild Kingdom Zoo and Fun Park where there are not only tons of animals to see but also a few amusement park type rides. There is a small butterfly conservatory too, where guests might be able to coax a butterfly to land on them. Definitely go to York’s silliest attraction, the famous Wiggly Bridge. It has been called the world’s shortest suspension bridge but it is definitely fun to take a step onto it and feel it wiggle and sway.

After a long day, go to York Harbor, it is only a short walk away from the Atlantic Ocean and features lots of great restaurants and bars.

Best Places to Stay in York Beach

Obviously the most ideal place to stay in York Beach would be somewhere along the wild shoreline. We suggest one of the many cottages available for rent.

Best Time to Visit York Beach

York Beach, for tourists, is exclusively a summer destination. Trust us when the winter winds come whipping through the city, no one will be eager to hang out by the water.
