We now have lived in Naperville Illinois for 28 years, but continue to return to Wallis Sands Beach and Hoyt’s Cottages in Rye, NY…the best…and, yes, travel to Oqunquit and Perkins Cove, too!!!!
I have always liked Sandy Neck Beach Park in Barnstable on Cape Cod. Don’t ask me why, I just do!
A lot has changed since 2007 – you need to update this info !!!
The Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine is such a beautiful place. It takes your breath away! Don’t miss it
Walked from 5 AM until 10AM with my brother and grandfarther from Salisbury thru Hampton and returned for breakfast with the family.That was way back in 1946 or so. Still remember the sand, water and fresh smells and the wonderful time we had just walking and talking. May not make the best beach rating but I loved it. Have not been back for the last 50 or so years and its probably not like anything I remember, but its New England and a New England beach so it will still be just great.
Another beautiful beach is Drake’s Island, Wells ME. Get there early if you want to get into the jetty parking lot. Great kids beach.
OOB is a tradition for us Mainers; from the ’70s to now it’s changed a lot. Go before Memorial Day and after Labor Day to get the best experience.
i cannot believe you did not mention Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport or Powder Point beach in Duxbury, Mass though i don’t know some of these other beaches
