Maine Landmark Makes Huffington Post’s Most Gorgeous, Secluded And Totally Hidden Beach List [VIDEO]

This so-called “secluded and totally hidden” Maine beach has made national news, so we guess it’s not a big secret anymore.

The Huffington Post recently published a story about “The 9 Most Gorgeous, Secluded And Totally Hidden Beaches.” and called them “the quietest, most pristine and untouched slices of paradise right here in the U.S.”

The Maine beach that they choose? Roque Bluffs!

We’d have to agree with this one. The beach at Roque Bluffs State Park, just a few miles off Route 1 south of Machias in Washington County, is one of the most beautiful places in Maine!

Here’s what Huffington Post had to say about it:  Why did the chicken cross the road? Because it was literally the only thing stopping her from this perfectly untouched stretch of sand on the Downeast coast. On one side is the Englishman Bay, with its lapping saltwater waves; on the other, the shallow warm freshwaters of Simpson Pond. You—er, the chicken—really can’t go wrong.”

Roque Bluffs is about 85 miles from Bangor, but well worth the trip.  Usually there’s plenty of room on the beach to spread out a blanket or a couple of chairs and enjoy the gently lapping of the ocean’s waves! The beach is mostly sand although it  and it’s a great place to launch a kayak. Or, launch your kayak across the street into Simpson Pond. Walk the six miles of trails and then enjoy lunch in the picnic area.  Rest rooms are available, too.
