About the Maine Seacoast
Old Orchard Beach, one of the long-time favorite vacation spots on the Maine coast, boasts a white sand beach seven miles long and 700 feet wide. The wide beach and low surf make the area a favorite spot for sunbathing and swimming. Smack in the middle of the beach, just a short walk from the hotel, is the historic Old Orchard Beach Pier. The Pier features an amusement park for the kids, shops, fun, food and entertainment. It’s clear why Old Orchard is voted “Maine’s Best Beach” year after year. Enjoy your Old Orchard Beach vacation as millions have for over 250 years.
