Biddeford Pool Beach

Biddeford Pool is a small coastal community just 85 miles north of Boston.

Biddeford Pool Beach lies at the eastern end of a two- mile long stretch of sandy beach that connects with Fortunes Rocks Beach to the west. The continuous expanse of sand allows for plenty of room to relax, swim in the waves, and explore the beach on foot. This city-owned public beach offers parking, restrooms and bath houses for changing and there are lifeguards on duty.

Parking is by permit only, available from Biddeford City Hall, City Clerks office. North of the public beach is the rocky coast of Biddeford Pool which is great for exploring tidal pools. There is the Audubon Trail on East Point which leads out to views of Wood Island Lighthouse. It is great for birding.

Across the beach from Biddeford Pool is the "Pool side." It is a saltwater pool perfect for kayaking as the waters are calm. The homes on this side of the Pool have accesses to the beach.

The village of Biddeford Pool has a local post office, Goldthwaite's store which offers groceries, fresh seafood and salads which you may enjoy indoors or out on their picnic tables overlooking East Point. Goldthwaite's also offers the freshest lobster to eat in or take out. There is also Between the Tides shop that offers gifts from The Pool.
