Short Sands Beach
A great place for a stroll, this quarter-mile stretch of Atlantic coastline bordering downtown York Beach is one of New England's top summertime destinations. Popular with vacationing families, Short Sands Beach combines scenic coastline views with easy access to York's amusements. Rocky cliffs are visible from the beach, and the 1879 Cape Neddick ("Nubble") Light Station is about a mile away. Nearby attractions also include an old-fashioned Fun-O-Rama arcade and an oceanfront promenade with a bathhouse, gazebo, playground, and basketball court.
