The weather is getting warmer, the kids will all be out of school in a few days, and our seasonal resorts have all reopened.  Yes, within a few days, Maine's popular beaches will be inundated with visitors worldwide.

What do you do when the family wants to have a beach day?  Deal with a beach slammed with tourists?  Nope!

Instead, check out one of Maine's more out-of-the-way beaches.

One of the many benefits of living in a state that has as much coastline as Maine does is that we have many lesser-known beaches that are overlooked or completely unknown by non-locals.

Thanks to Only In Your State, here's a breakdown of five of the state's more secluded beaches:

Roque Bluffs State Park – This beach is near Machias, and also features six miles of trails to walk.

Seawall Beach – It takes a little effort to get to this secluded Phippsburg beach. You have to go on a one-mile hike through the Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area.  On the plus side, this means there'll be fewer people on the beach.

Laudholm Beach – Located in Wells, this one is a little bit of a drive, but it's worth it.  To get there, go to the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve and follow the trails.

Birch Point State Park – A short drive from the Owls Head Transportation Museum, many non-locals overlook this beach.  It features calming surf and a lot of sand.

Lamoine State Park – Located in Lamoine, one of the cool features of this beach is the fact that camping is allowed.  Yes!  Like something out of a movie, you can actually camp right on the beach.  On top of that, it is a short trip from Acadia National Park.
