Spring, Summer, Fall: Make a day of soaking up the sun and surf at Popham Beach. Popham Beach lies near the town of Phippsburg just south of where the Kennebec River spills into the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a big beach so there’s plenty of room to stroll the shore gathering seashells, grills available for summer cookouts, and even showers to rinse off all that sand at the end of a long day. With two rocky islands off shore the views here are stunning and you can even walk to the closer Fox island at low tide. Just remember to make it back before the tide comes in! The waters here are also a popular place to surf or try your luck fishing for Striped Bass and Bluefish that call this place home in summer.
