Community Information

For the vacationers, people who summer here, year round residents, and local Mainers who visit from time to time, Higgins Beach is more than just a sandy spot on the Maine coast. For many, the beach is more about a state of mind than a physical location. This special place we call Higgins Beach means different things to different people. Most will agree that it's the people that make this such a special community. Famiilies and friends unite, friendships are created, and memories are made here, right on Higgins Beach. 

If you would like to plan a vacation at Higgins Beach, please see our rental page for information on cottages and places to stay. And, if you'd like to stay longer, see our featured properties for sale.
