Even with the mandatory 14 day quarantine for out-of-staters, we'll soon see people flocking to Maine's beaches.  And, for now, most beaches are limiting capacity.  Unless you get up before dawn, this could make having that beach day a little more of a pain than it has been in the past.

What do you?  Why not try one of the state's more out-of-the-way beaches?

One of the many benefits of living in a state that has as much coastline as Maine does is that we have many lesser known beaches.  There are many Maine beaches that are overlooked, or completely unknown, by non-locals.


Thanks to Only In Your State, here's a breakdown of five of the state's more secluded beaches:

Roque Bluffs State Park - Near Machias, this beach also features six miles of trails to walk.

Seawall Beach - Located in Phippsburg, it does take a little effort to get to this secluded beach.  You have to make a 1 mile hike through the Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area.  On the plus side, this means there'll be fewer people on the beach.

Laudholm Beach - Located in Wells, it is a little bit of a drive, but it is worth it.  To get there, go to the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve and follow the trails.

Birch Point State Park - A short drive from the Owls Head Transportation Museum, many non-locals overlook this beach.  It features calming surf and a lot of sand.

Lamoine State Park - Located in Lamoine, one of the cool features of this beach is the fact that they allow camping.  Yes!  Like something out of a movie, you can actually camp right on the beach.  On top of that, it is a short trip from Acadia National Park.
