One of Maine's Best Kept Secrets
Whether you are looking to stay for a vacation or the whole summer, you've come to the right place.
For vacationers, summer residents and local Mainers who visit, Higgins Beach is more than just a sandy spot on the Maine coast. For many, the beach is more about a state of mind than a physical location. It's where families and friends unite, friendships are created and memories are made. We welcome you for a vacation of a lifetime.
Small and quiet, with a spectacular 1/2 mile beach, Higgins Beach is only a short drive to Portland and its popular "Old Port" restaurants and shops. With its silky sand and smooth expanse at low tide, the beach is framed on one end by the Spurwink River and Cape Elizabeth, and on the other end by rocky outcroppings and tidal pools harboring crabs, starfish, and other ocean treasures. Beyond the cliffs, one can see Scarborough Beach and Prouts Neck.
