Sandy Point Beach

Sandy Point Beach

The beach at Sandy Point Beach Park near the town of Stockton Springs is cozy, wedged between a pair of rocky headlands, looking out over the point where the Penobscot River widens into Penobscot Bay. It’s a great place to spot nesting osprey, hike a couple miles of boggy trails, and spot a half-buried passenger steamboat at low tide.
