We always get to Popham Beach just before low tide, so that we can maximize our time walking along the sand bar and climbing on the rocks of Fox Island.
The island is only accessible at low tide, and is a very popular destination when coming to the beach.
It is a big granite outcropping with a large expanse of rock to traverse.
There are lots crevices to jump over...
and tiny caves to explore.
And, if you're a bird, the island gives you a great vantage point from which to keep an eye out for fishing boats filled with the daily catch.
