Higgins Beach Travel Tips

Find Family Fun at Higgins Beach Vacation Rentals

Higgins Beach is a family vacation paradise located only 7 miles south of Portland, Maine. If you're not looking for an overly crowded and commercialized beach, Higgins Beach is for you. Portland Casco Bay cottages have everything you and your family are looking for to feel like you're at home at this beach. You and your family will be very comfortable in a spacious cottage compared to anywhere else.

Higgins Beach Lodging Can Put You Close to the Beach

You can't go wrong with Higgins Beach. If you like to surf, whether you are a beginner or pro, the waves here are perfect. If you don't like surfing, Higgins Beach is also known for striper fishing, so bring your fishing pole because the fish are biting. If it's only sun bathing and book reading you're after then this charming beach is for you. Kayaking and swimming are other activities that locals participate in. If you walk on Higgins beach at low tide, you will see the remains of a ship wreck that is very interesting to observe and might inspire the kids to dig for buried treasure.

Feel like a Local by Staying at a Vacation Rental at Higgins Beach

You will feel like a local in these phenomenal vacation rentals. Higgins Beach happens to be a public beach but it's used mostly by locals since public parking is very limited. You won't feel like a tourist walking to the beach from the luxury of your own vacation rental. You shouldn't have to worry about annoying crowds and be able to enjoy your magnificent cottage as if it were your second home.

What to Eat at Higgins Beach

Hungry at the beach? Local business Higgins Beach Market has you covered. Located at the entrance to the Higgins Beach, your family will be able to enjoy a sandwich, hot dog, or something tasty. If you don't feel like cooking in your fantastic Higgins Beach vacation rental, you can visit Spurwink Country Kitchen just a few minutes from Higgins Beach for a traditional meal.
