Find YOUR oceanside wedding spot on one of these Scarborough Maine beaches!
All of the Scarborough Maine beaches offer some soft sandy beaches as well as some locations have some rocky coastline mixed in.
Scarborough Maine beaches are not as convenient to get to as the beaches in the more southern areas of Maine...but they offer some of the most dramatic scenery!
I am excited to share information with you about these beaches located in the town of Scarborough.
These beaches are not close to one another and the routes vary, so I will provide you directions to each of them.
First on the list is Pine Point Beach.(Pine Point Beach photo courtesy of "mmwm")
There is a large paid parking lot and bathroom facilities. The beach is long and narrow, especially at high tide...but the sand dunes are really neat.
Directions: Take the Maine Turnpike to exit 36 (Saco) and get of the off ramp for Route 1 North. Travel North about 5 and half miles and then you will take a right onto Route 9. Travel down Route 9 for about 2.5 miles. You will drive straight through the intersection as if you are going to drive into the ocean and take your last left (King St) and then take your first right (Avenue One) and you are there!
Directions to the next three beaches all start off the same. Take the Maine Turnpike to exit 42 (Scarborough) and go straight through the intersection. Travel straight to the other end of Haigis Parkway at Route 1. Take a left onto Route 1 and travel approximately 1.5 miles and take a right onto Route 207.
Scarborough Beach State Park. There is lots of parking and bathroom facilities. There is a park entrance fee.
Directions: After taking the right onto Route 207, travel approx. 3.8 miles and take a left onto Scarborough Beach State Park Rd. Go to the end, and you are there!
Ferry Beach.(Ferry Beach photo courtesy of Jamie Belanger)
There is a small paid parking lot and portable bathroom facilities. The beach is not very big, especially at high tide...but the sand dunes are really neat and depending on how far you want to walk, there are some pretty spots.
This beach really is on the mouth of the Scarborough river where it meets the ocean. You have to walk out around a bend in the beach to actually get a view out over the ocean.
Directions: After taking the right onto Route 207, travel approx. 4.25 miles and take a right onto Ferry Rd. Go to the end and you are there!
Last is Higgins Beach.(photo courtesy of Joe Schlabotnik)
There is a small paid parking lot and no bathroom facilities. The beach is absolutely breath-taking!
Directions: After taking the right onto 207, travel approx 3 miles and then take a left onto Route 77. Go approximately 1.1 miles and take a right onto Bayview Ave. At the end of the road is the beach!
If you are interested in an Oceanside ceremony, but would like to work with a venue, there is an Inn at Higgins Beach called none the less…Higgins Beach Inn that caters to weddings. Other than that, there are no other hotels or Inns in this vicinity.
I will be posting pictures of these Scarborough Maine beaches as I take them!
