Coastal Maine Real Estate

Lifestyle Options Along Maine's Diverse Coast

Pine Point - Scarborough, Maine

The Maine Coast, with its many peninsulas, harbors, islands and inlets took thousands of years to form.  Today if offers spectacular panoramic ocean vistas from its rock coastline to its sandy beaches.  The variety is astounding and many opportunities exist to own oceanfront real estate that is truly unique.

The coast of Maine is quiet deceptive in that it is only 228 miles in length when measured from one end to the other.  However if one were to transverse the entire coast, traveling along each bay, the distance is considerable more.  In fact, at 3,478 miles it is surprising longer than California.  Only the coastlines of Alaska at 5,580 miles and Florida, at 8,426 miles are longer, thus creating an unspoiled expanse of natural beauty that is truly Maine.
