Higgins Beach, located in Scarborough, Maine, is a small seaside community of approximately 300 Beach Houses.  In addition, the community has two Inns (The Breakers and The Higgins Beach Inn), which are open during the summer season.  Also, to the delight of locals and renters alike, Higgins Beach Market is located at the entrance to the Beach.  The "Market" specializing in fresh produce from area farms, coffee, donuts, muffins, and friendly chat!

Higgins Beach has a stretch of fine white sand, extending across the beachfront and curling around "the spit" which borders the Spurwink River.

At low tide, the beach becomes a playground for those who enjoy collecting shells, playing volleyball or frisbee, making sandcastles, and an endless variety of activities.  Several "tidal pools" are left behind from the previous high tide, and are especially appealing to the little ones who spend countless hours splashing around and discovering the many treasures Higgins Beach has to offer.

DOGS ON THE BEACH

There are select times dog owners may walk their dog on the Beach.  From mid June through August, dogs are allowed off leash from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. only.  No dogs are allowed on the Beach from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  After 5:00 p.m., dogs are allowed on the beach, on leash, with their owner.

PARKING ON THE BEACH

Parking is limited.  Your Beach House property will have a designated amount of space for parking.  All vehicles must be parked totally off the road and either in the driveway or on the grass.  There is a parking lot (currently $10.00 daily rate - Jan. '05) with a capacity for approximately 100 vehicles.
