Bay View Beach

Bay View Beach in Saco, Maine is a dog-friendly beach. Dogs can stay and play here all day with their owners. Dogs must be leashed and under control of their owners from April 1 to Sept. 30 on beaches in Saco where piping plovers or least terns are present or have traditionally nested. Previously, dogs only had to be on leash on the beach from 9am to 5pm. The rest of the year, dogs are allowed all day off-leash and under voice control. Visit Website

    Great spot to spend the day.

    I loved the whole idea of being allowed to take my dog to the beach. it was a great experience and all the dogs I saw were well behaved. It’s a shame more beaches aren’t like this. As others said, parking is extremely limited so be prepared for that. I would absolutely recommend (I liked it so much we went back a second time during our trip to the area.)

    Hard to find and little parking

    No parking if you get there after 11am. Mostly out-of-state cars.

    Perfect Dog Friendly Beach

    So thankful to find an all day dog friendly beach to stop at on our way home! There were many other well behaved dogs, and it was not too overcrowded

    Had A Blast At Bay View Beach

    We took our pup to Bay View Beach today and he had the absolute best time. I’m not sure who had more fun - our pup or us watching him have the time of his life. The weather was a bit overcast but the temperature was probably mid-70s. The water temps were decent and the beach wasn’t overly crowded. There were probably 8-10 other dogs who passed by us but our pup could’ve cared less. He was too content chasing his ball and splashing in and out of the waves. We will definitely be back! 🐶❤️🌊

    All Day Dog Beach!

    We were so happy to find a beach that allows dogs to go all day! It is a nice sandy beach. Our pups swam, dug in the sand and laid on the beach!

    Fun day at the beach

    I was so happy to find a nice beach that allowed us to have our dog with us during the day and not for 2 hours in the early morning!

    Great dog friendly beach

    This beach was relatively busy because of the 4th of July holiday weekend, but everyone was courteous and there were plenty of other dogs about. Patrons were diligent about picking up dog waste, so the beach was nice and clean. I can't wait to take Ares back!
