9 Maine beaches for each activity

Written by: Katy Kelleher

We don’t normally advocate bad-mouthing our neighbor states, but did you know that Maine has over 17 times more coastline than New Hampshire? They’ve got a paltry 13 miles, while we boast a whopping 228. (Don’t even get me started on Vermont.) Plus, if you count all the islands and inlets, the sheltered coves and toe-shaped protrusions that make up the coast, you’ll get over 5,000 miles of ocean-adjacent land. But, you might be thinking, with that many miles to choose from, how do I decide where to park my beach towel?
