Beautiful beaches are Scarborough’s signature feature, with lucky locals having their pick between the shores of Pine Point, Higgins, Ferry and Scarborough Beaches throughout the seasons. Add Maine’s largest salt marsh, the Eastern Trail and more, and you have a nature lover’s personal paradise. The landscape is inspiring indeed, but there’s more to Scarborough than the sparkling sea. Warm and welcoming, Scarborough residents cherish their coastal community. You need not leave the bounds of town for a thing, be it gas, groceries or dinner at the historic Black Point Inn. Situated just 7 miles south of Portland, Scarborough will have you singing the praises of a life well lived!
