This imaginatively named beach can be found in the beautiful surrounds of Acadia National Park. A landscape of pine forests, lakes and glacially-carved granite peaks this is a true wilderness. The wildlife won’t disappoint either with bears, moose and whales found in the area.
With a backdrop like this it wouldn’t take too much for any beach to make it onto a list of Maine’s best beaches. But Sand beach manages to live up to its name and more. As well as a 300 yard stretch of sandy beach there is a meadow and lagoon behind - ideal for picnics.
Despite being located on the remote sounding Mount Desert Island it isn’t too hard to get here and the beach is pretty popular so don’t expect to have this idyllic spot to yourself.
