My husband and I (no kids) have vacationed in Maine several times--Damariscotta, Bremen, and Peak's Island. I love it, but he is still in search of a place where he can swim--and he prefers the coast to a lake. He'd like to find a spot further south of the places we have stayed in--somewhere with a sandy-ish beach and good surf. He also likes to kayak. Is Wells something to consider? I'm not sure we'd want to rent a cottage in a community, since from what I can see, they seem very crowded and close together. Thank for suggestions!
