Ever since I was little, my family has been going to Short Sands Beach in York, Maine. The beach and the surrounding area holds lots of wonderful memories for me. Short Sands is a small, but relaxing stretch of land. The ocean is beautiful and it's a great place to hunt for sea creatures among the rocks. Lots of people use the rented floats and use their own water "toys" to ride the waves that can get big! The water is generally exciting to surf and just splash around in! It's a family friendly place with all its quaint shops and family restaurants.
