Surfrider Foundation Maine Chapter

Beach Access

Our Chapter works to protect the public’s right of access to Maine’s ocean, waves, and beaches. We do this through campaigns that seek a decision from a governing body and through programs geared toward helping people understand their rights.

We’ve been a party to litigation in multiple cases spanning back to 2010, and have also engaged in local and state campaigns out of court as well as educational programming to help ease tensions and encourage conflict resolution that promotes beach access for ALL, not just for those who can afford to live on the beach.

Keep tuned to our Facebook page for the latest updates and opportunities to engage; catch our campaign wins here and current campaigns here.

Are YOU experiencing an issue with public beach access in Maine? We want to hear all about it and we may be able to help! Email our executive committee volunteers and regional manager for more info:
