Largest beach in York. There’s few shops along the beach and some street parking but if you need to park I would get there early.

It is a long sandy beach. If the tide is low or at least mid tide, you are ok; but at high tide 80% of the beach is gone. And don't forget that the temperature of the water is around 55 degrees. To drive on the road in front of long sands is really the pleasure. You can see the Nubble Lighthouse and if it is high tide, some great waves. If you are headed north, near the end of the drive you can see some old homes on the cliff.

York Beaches - Long Sands and Short Sands - Great spot for families. Large beaches, many people, more surf, life guards, food, souvenir shops, restaurants. Nubble Light House is in between the two beaches and worth the trip. Right near the light house is Dunne’s Ice Cream (used to be the famous Brown’s Ice Cream). Short Sands is just beyond Long Sands, and also has a playground, basketball nets, more parking, home made salt water taffy made before your very eyes, and the Arcade and Bowling Alley.

Largest beach in York -- a short drive from the house, view of the lighthouse. I prefer the Harbor Beach!
