The location where the popular movie Message In A Bottle was filmed, Phippsburg includes some of the best beaches in the area.
There is no local or intercity public transport.
Portland (Maine) has air and rail service. From there, I-95 north to I-295 north leads to Brunswick (Maine). Exit onto US Route 1 north, following the coast up to Bath (Maine). Exit right to State Route 209, which goes through Phippsburg.
You will need a vehicle. As roads (with the exception of Route 209) are mostly narrow with no shoulder, biking can be awkward; motorcars run 40 mph on the back roads and there can be high traffic on the way to the beach in summer’s high season.
As most of the town is surrounded by water, many places are easily accessible by boat.
