Let’s go for a swim!

Shirttail Point is one of our favorites, Terry is a certified diving instructor, and that’s where the lessons are held. It’s easy access from the main road, and has ample parking, and a nice grassy area for a picnic or a lounge. If you’re here in Camden at the moment, the crowds of people have yet to come, it’s a nice time to enjoy a warm day with a good book and a beach towel.

If you’re out and about, Lincolnville and their amazing coastline have what you’re looking for. There’s wonderful dining options on either side of you, and the nice calm bay area that’s suitable for an “all age” family. Incredible views to the islands nearby, and a good stretch to walk along in hopes of finding some sea glass!

Laite Beach here in Camden is another optimal choice. A little closer to town than Shirttail, it’s also got a pretty decent area to picnic or lounge.

Whatever your choice may be, we wish you the best of fun. Remember to find us on Facebook, and Twitter and comment below with your favorite spot here in Camden!
