Short Sands Beach stretches for around 300 yards within the oceanfront community of York, southern Maine. Despite its name, Short Sands Beach still manages to form a suitable fine ribbon of sand within Ellis Park. On the highest tides, Short Sands can all but disappear temporarily.

Together with the park, Short Sands Beach provides amenities which include public restrooms, basketball courts, a children’s sand playground and a grassy picnic area. During the summer months, lifeguards are also on duty daily. Benches can be found along the promenade running parallel to the beach, where there are several options for food and drink. Parking costs $2 per hour.
