South Coast Maine Tourism Attractions

The Coast of Southern Maine is famous for its miles of white sandy beaches that stretch from Kittery to Old Orchard Beach – just south of Portland. Scattered along the shoreline among the beaches are a variety of fantastic nature preserves – each with hiking and biking trails, wildlife and bird sanctuaries and saltwater marshes.

The communities along the southern coast also offer diverse attractions including sports and recreation areas, historical museums, lighthouses, art galleries, shopping in unique and specialty shops, historic forts and awe-inspiring ocean views.
