Seal Harbor Beach

44.296407, -68.240796
Peabody Drive
Seal Harbor, ME 04675
Hancock County

This small public beach has scenic views of Seal Harbor and the boating activity. With a small park and convenient restrooms, it’s popular with both tourists and locals. Seaweed is cleared during summer months, although there are always remains on the beach. High-tide vastly reduces the beach size, and low tide reveals a rocky sand mix. There is a gradual slope to the water and a shallow inlet to Stanley Brook which creates a good play area for children.
