Drakes Island Beach in Wells is my favorite. A long sandy beach and not as busy as the main section of Wells Beach. You can walk down to the Wildlife bird sanctuary with no houses - just the sea and sand.
Ted's favorite ocean spot in Maine is Crescent Beach. It's about a half mile south of Wells Beach which is at the end of Mile Road. Adults and kids alike love to explore in the tide pools. Finding starfish and crabs is always fun. Bring a strong pair of binoculars or a telescope and check out the seals on Bucklin Rock.
Moody Beach is actually privately owned. In 1989 the oceanfront owners won a court case and they can ask you to leave their property if you're not "fishing, fowling or navigating". No public facilities but you can power walk down to the frozen yoghurt stand at the public Ogunquit Beach in about 15 minutes.
