Welcome to Scarborough

A suburban community offering beautiful sandy beaches, estuaries, and the largest saltwater marsh in Maine.


Located 7 miles south of Portland, Scarborough’s community activities revolve around its natural beauty.
Miles of well-maintained trail systems cross the town, connecting beautiful beaches to conservation land and providing a serene outlet for bikers, joggers, cross country skiers, and horseback riders alike. The town is proud of the balance it has with its commercial business. Residents can find almost everything they need along the Route One stretch. Scarborough is also home to Prouts Neck. With its impressive waterfront homes, it’s a popular spot for those who crave something more private than the Hamptons.




Scarborough Beach State Park

Scarborough Beach offers some of the best swimming in New England. Water temperatures remain warm throughout the summer months making this state park a popular spot for locals and visitors alike.

Higgins Beach

Just north of Prouts Neck and Old Orchard Beach and south of Crescent Beach State Park, is Higgins Beach. Visible at low tide is an 1897 shipwreck that captivates visitors. Bask in the relatively warm waters or enjoy a stroll along the half-mile shoreline.

Pine Point Beach

Pine Point Beach (Hurd Park) in Scarborough extends for four miles along Saco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, from the jetty at the mouth of the Scarborough River to Old Orchard Beach. You’ll find plenty of room to relax on the beach, swim, play Frisbee or catch, or take a stroll along the beach to search for shells and driftwood.

Scarborough Marsh

A 3,100-acre saltwater marsh and the largest in Maine. It is a stopover on the Atlantic Flyway so you can see many birds migrating during the spring and fall seasons.

Prouts Neck

If you travel along the peninsula of Prouts Neck at the southern end of Scarborough, Maine, you can view homes designed by architect John Calvin Stevens and see the rocky cliffs that inspired painter, Winslow Homer. At the Prouts Neck Bird Sanctuary, you can walk on a path that passes Homer’s studio and see the nesting area of the endangered piping plover. You can also enjoy miles of sandy beaches. Lifeguards are on duty from June 10th through Labor Day.

Scarborough School System

Ranked among the top in the state, the arts and athletics programs are top-notch.
