When we reflect back on our day at Popham Beach, we have fond memories of the sun kissing our shoulders, the sea gulls stealing our sandwiches, the long and winding walk to get to the bathroom, and the sandy shores along the mouth of the Kennebec River. We can honestly pull favorites here and say Popham Beach is the best beach in Maine.

Popham Beach provided some of the most breathtaking views I’ve ever witnessed, when coupled with the morning fog rising above the tide. We were the FIRST ones on the beach – a testament to the rest of the extended family that are early risers – and momentarily had the remarkable landscape all to ourselves.
