The start of summer has not been all that great for us, especially with the seemingly never-ending rain. June was a month that we'd all like to forget. There were only a handful of days in the month that it didn't rain at least a little. Most days it rained a lot.

But good things come to those who wait and when it's time to grab our beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels and bury our feet in the sand on our favorite Maine beaches we'll be ready!

But what exactly makes a beach our favorite? Is it the water, the sand, the cleanliness, the beauty, the things to do at the beach? It's something different for everyone. And there's something unique about Maine's beaches compared to the rest of the country.

So in a very unscientific method, I posed this question on my Facebook page: "What's your favorite Maine beach and why? It can be ocean, lake, or any body of water."

After more than 100 responses, I tallied up the votes and present to you the list of the 10 Maine beaches that you love the most. Some honorable mentions that didn't make the top 10 are Mount Blue State Park, Hunter's Beach, Ferry Beach, and Keoka Beach. You're free to disagree of course, and if you do, share your favorite in the comments.

Grab your swimsuit, sunscreen, and beach towel, and let's dive right into the list.
