Real Estate Agent with EXIT Oceanside Realty


  Sixty-two square miles comprise the Town of Wells which has a year round population of about 10,000 people. There is a significant increase in the population during the summer months as tourist from around the United States, Canada and abroad visit to enjoy the seven miles of coastline that Wells has to offer.

The town has several different sections with interesting names. The most southern beach area of Wells is Moody Beach, next is Wells Beach, and the most northerly beach is at Drakes Island. To the west are High Pine, Wells Branch, and the Merriland Ridge Area. Together, these areas make up the Town of Wells.

Most of the population along U.S. Route 1 (Post Road) and the ocean is served by public water from the Kennebunk, Kennebunport and Wells Water District and by public sewer through the Wells Sanitary District.  A recycling and transfer station takes refuse from property taxpayers (a sticker is required) and from several independent collectors. Cable television service for most of Wells is provided by Time Warner.

Tourism plays an important part in the livelihood of Wells. Visitors will find a wide selection of fine hotels and motels, campgrounds, restaurants, gift and antique shops, and recreational facilities.
