Small, beach-side, towns in the Northeastern area of the United States?

I am considering moving to the Northeast of the US and I would like to know if any of you know a good, SMALL, beach-side town... So far, I have come across Ellsworth, Maine and I like it very much but, I would like some more input. THANKS :)

    hmmm I wouldn't consider Ellsworth a beach town? The coast of Maine becomes predominately rugged and rocky after you get further down east from Casco Bay (Portland).

    For Maine - Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Wells and York are what I would consider beach towns. There are other smaller beach "communities", but those aren't towns in my opinion - Biddeford Pool for example.

    New Hampshire - Hampton Beach, Seabrook. There are town beaches in places like Rye and N. Hampton, but no services at the beach, such as restaurants, bars etc...

    Massachusetts- Newburyport, Ipswich, Rockport, Cape Cod - every town on the Cape. All of Nantucket & Martha's Vineyard.

    Rhode Island -Narragansett, all towns along Block Island Sound from South Kingston to Westerly.

    NY - all of the coastal communities on Long Island

    New Jersey - the infamous Jersey Shore all seaside towns from Long Beach to Cape May.
