Short Sands Beach

Short Sands Beach

Not the spot to head to for solitude, this York Beach is a beach-blanket party in the summer for families. Preening teens strut around the adjacent boardwalk or loiter in front of the retro arcade. Fun fact: Every few years, heavy storms drag enough sand off the beach to unearth an old Revolutionary War sloop that lies beneath.
