- Higgins Beach just happens to be one of the best beaches in Maine. It is a 3/4 mile white sand beach (the kind of fine sand that "squeaks" when you walk on it) located bewteen rockbound cliffs to the south and the Spurwink River to the north. A gentle beach slope makes it safe for the kids while the offshore surf break makes it a favorite of surfers. Offshore is Richmond Island, a great destination for kayakers. A real "beach community" the Higgins Beach neighborhood is walkable - you don't have to get in your car to buy local seafood at the fishmarket, fresh fruit, vegetables, meat at the Higgins Beach Market, or pick up your sundries at the corner store. Although, you may opt to dine at one of the award winning restaurants at the two local hotels. The Higgins Beach Clubhouse offers Wednesday morning breakfasts, scheduled musical entertainment, festive Fourth of July activities, etc.
