Head Beach is located off Route 216 in Phippsburg, Maine. Family owned this small beach (around 1000 feet) and campground is open to the public during summer months. Calm water caused by the rocky ledges on each end of the beach and a quick walk through the grassy dunes to the water makes Head Beach family friendly location.
