Local Natural Wonders Day 20 - Pemaquid Beach in New Harbor, Maine
Pemaquid Beach is owned by the Town of Bristol in midcoast Maine. It is operated by the Bristol Parks Commission for the Town of Bristol and a "sister" park to the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park.
Located about an hour north of Freeport on the coast, this beach has beautiful clear water and the sand is groomed daily. There are changing rooms and showers, as well as an outdoor shower to rinse feet and legs. Guests with mobility issues can request to be taken onto the beach in the "Gator.” There is a $5 fee per person age 12 and up.
Since 2003, the Parks Commission has been partnered with the Pemaquid Watershed Association to offer a nature center called "Beachcombers' Rest". Located inside the beach pavilion, the nature center features exhibits and displays describing the ecology of the beach.
