Old Orchard Beach

Southern Maine's most popular beach

The seaside community boasts a diverse and large population of up to 75,000 in the summer as it hosts vacationers from all over the United States but primarily from New England and the mid-Atlantic states, Canada and Europe looking to enjoy our miles-long stretch of fine beach, clean ocean water and all the attractions that both Old Orchard Beach and the surrounding City of Portland have to offer. 


Old Orchard’s Pier - which extends nearly 500 feet out over the Atlantic Ocean -is the center of the recreational offerings here. On the pier, visitors can shop, eat, play games of skill, enjoy the nightlife, go dancing, watch fireworks, listen to concerts, fish, or go on a whale watching or bird watching tour.

One way you can reach Old Orchard Beach is aboard the Amtrak Downeaster, which stops just steps away from the beach.

The seven-mile long stretch of wide sandy beach is understandably the major attraction. But when visiting Old Orchard Beach there is a full range of things available to see and do in and around the Old Orchard Beach area.
