 The village of York is made up of the Long Sands and Short Sands beaches along the Atlantic Ocean coast. On the north shore of Cape Neddick, Short Sands Beach features a promenade with souvenir shops, restaurants, and a classic amusement arcade, while nearby York’s Wild Kingdom has a zoo and theme park. On the south shore, the 1.5-mile Long Sands Beach offers a more laid-back vibe and tide pools.
