Saco Bay & Camp Ellis Beach

Visit the Saco Bay and Camp Ellis Beach at Cristina’s

The Maine Ocean has been remarkably tranquil the past few days. I only wish that I had time to go kayaking, the sport I love second to playing a good game of racquetball. Cristina’s, our Maine bed and breakfast, offers easy access to Saco Bay and the best kayaking in Southern Maine.

The Wood Island Lighthouse is a two mile paddle that challenges both strength and stamina. Within easier reach is Hills Beach, around the jetty and across the Saco River. Beginners can easily enjoy the safety of hugging the coast while paddling in Saco Bay. For those without kayaks of their own, Bare Knee Point Kayak Rentals is only a three minute walk from Maine’s Best bed and breakfast, Cristina’s in Camp Ellis Beach, Saco.

Safety and caution is always emphasized. Beginners should take the time to learn about their kayaks, best done in shallow water in case of a wet mishap. Life jackets are mandatory; a skirt to keep water out while paddling is encouraged. Obey all water safety rules and enjoy the experience.

Cristina’s offers multiple lodging options for your Maine coastal rental vacation. Though we concentrate on Weekly Rentals during the Prime Summer Weeks, we offer long-term packages throughout the Fall, Winter, and Spring months. We also have bed and breakfast availability for shorter stays. We recommend calling in advance to confirm openings.
Call us to make a reservation and we look forward to hosting you and your family.
