Spring has not been all that great for us, especially when winters in Maine seem so long for those of us that prefer the warmth of summer. Most of us, with the exception of the hardcore snowmobilers and skiers, are dreaming of warm summer days lounging at our favorite beach in the Pine Tree State.
But good things come to those who wait and until it's time to grab our beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels and bury our feet in the sand on our favorite Maine beaches, we can all dream about our favorite beaches.
But what exactly makes a beach our favorite? Is it the water, the sand, the cleanliness, the beauty, the things to do at the beach? It's something different for everyone.
So in a very unscientific method, I posed this question on my Facebook page: "What's your favorite Maine beach and why? It can be ocean, lake, or any body of water."
After more than 100 responses, I tallied up the votes and present to you the list of the 10 Maine beaches that you love the most. Some honorable mentions that didn't make the top 10 are Mount Blue State Park, Hunter's Beach, Ferry Beach, and Keoka Beach. You're free to disagree of course, and if you do, share your favorite in the comments.
Grab your swimsuit, sunscreen, and beach towel. Let's dive right into the list.
