Picturesque villages & quaint communities define the Maine Coast. According to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Maine has 3,478 miles of coastline from end to end (5,000 miles if you include all the islands – Maine has over 3,000!). Only Florida, Louisiana, & Alaska have more miles of coastline in the United States. Popular coastal towns such as Belfast, Camden, Rockland, Wiscasset, & Brunswick feature miles of recreational trails, rich Maine history, and farm-to-table restaurants serving classic comfort food. Whether you want to spend your days visiting small antique shops and chatting with local residents, or you want to be left alone to enjoy the stunning landscape and scenery, coastal Maine is the perfect place to do either.
