Cape Neddick Beach
Cape Neddick Beach is located on Shore Road and is also known as Passaconaway Beach. Neddick is believed to be an Algonkian word meaning "solitary" referring to the nubble of land isolated from the peninsula, where the Nubble Lighthouse is located. This is a very small, secluded beach with no facilities and limited parking. But this is an excellent tide pooling beach at low tide and a great view of the lighthouse, a popular subject for shutterbugs.
York Harbor Beach
York Harbor Beach is located on York Street, across from the York Harbor Inn. It's less commonly known among tourists and is more of a "locals beach". This beach is secluded and great for tide pooling for seacreatures in the craggy rocks along the shore. It also features the Cliff Walk, a public path that goes up the cliff to the top past historic homes that overlook the ocean. Parking is limited but no charge. Lifeguards are on duty in the summertime from the end of June to Labor Day.
