Things To Do

1. Sunrise Walk on Long Sands Beach

Right outside of the Sunrise Motel, Long Sands Beach is one of the largest beaches in Southern Maine at 1.5 miles, with beautiful walks, especially at sunrise. For longer walks, head south towards York Harbor and the Cliff Walk, then head to historic York and visit the various museums. Click here for more information on York Beach Walks.

2. Surfing

Even if it is just body-surfing, riding the waves is fun, and the waves on Long Sands Beach are usually good. Just down the road from the motel is a surf shop called Liquid Dreams. You can rent surfing equipment and wetsuits if you require – it make you feel like you’re 10. Click Here for more information on York Beach Surfing at Liquid Dreams.
