A few miles south of Portland, the quaint beach hamlet of Scarborough has a special small-town appeal that is absent from the busier metropolis. Although Scarborough’s beaches are its claim to fame, it is only one feature of this charming little town. There are numerous activities, like learning about the region’s fascinating history, relaxing on the nearby beaches, and delighting in the freshest seafood. The most well-known beach in Scarborough is Pine Point Beach. From Pine Point’s jetty to Old Orchard Beach, Pine Point Beach stretches for seven miles and is one of Scarborough’s top locations for swimming, tanning, surfing, and windsurfing. If you want to go out and enjoy the day with your family, Memorial Park features playground equipment, picnic tables, and grills.
