Perched on Maine's rugged Atlantic coast, around 35 minutes by car from the vibrant waterfront city of Portland, Hills Beach is a tranquil stretch of soft golden sand, ideal for a revitalizing weekend getaway or laid-back family vacation. This little slice of paradise is a scenic 10-minute drive from bustling Biddeford, a cosmopolitan college town with a thriving arts scene, chic shops and welcoming restaurants where you can feast on everything from fresh, locally sourced seafood to Italian-style thin crust pizza. Hills Beach vacation rentals include stylish condos, cozy cottages and luxurious family houses, so there's something for everyone.

Get wet and wild or shop 'til you drop around Hills Beach

The shimmering waters around Hills Beach lure anglers from far and wide, who flock here to land highly-prized catches such as bass, bluefish, tuna and mackerel. Expert local fishers will be all too happy to let you join their charters, ensuring that you won't return home from sea empty handed. If that sounds too much like hard work, you could board a boat in search of enchanting local marine life like playful porpoises and adorable seals. Should you prefer to stay on dry land, the region is a dream for discerning shoppers, with bargain filled outlet villages, treasure packed antiques stores and elegant fashion boutiques.

Lazy summer days on Hills Beach

Hills Beach vacation rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer season of June to August. At this time of year you can expect late sunsets and weather that's usually pleasantly warm rather than stiflingly hot. During late spring or early fall, crowds are thinner but temperatures are still often very agreeable. Winters, by contrast, can get very chilly, with a strong chance of snowfall or biting winds likely if you're visiting between December and February.

On your way down to the shore you'll traverse rolling sand dunes, while the nearby wetlands provide a scenic home for all manner of wild animals, from snapping turtles to delicate songbirds.
