Ferry Beach runs for several hundred glories yards on southern Maine’s Saco Bay before its soft pale sands blend with those of Bayview Beach. Although relatively narrow, Ferry Beach is still a popular place to soak up the sun or take a dip in this part of the Atlantic Ocean. The adjoining state park features picnic benches, walking trails and a cluster of unusual tupelo (black gum) trees.
During the summer season (from the beginning of April until the end of September) changing rooms and restrooms are available. No dogs are allowed on Ferry Beach during these months. Two and four-legged visitors are still able to use the beach in the off-season, but need to park outside the beach gates. A fee for visiting is collected year-round.
