Wells Beach reviews
We did a short winter walk with kids while the tide was out. This is a much rockier beach the Old Orchard Beach but still nice for a winter walk. more »
Beatiful beach, to walk on or just admire from street promenade. Tends to disappear at high tide but the rocks and birds on them are a very pretty sight. more »
