Great place to walk along the coast in one of the prettiest beaches in Maine. You can walk several miles if you want to.

Located in a high tourist district, many surrounding community beaches fill quickly for parking and you miss out unless you get there early. This beach is just north of Kennebunk, so the tourism is not so heavy. The beach requires a pass which you need...More

I guess that this beach is lovely on a summers day - a wide soft sand area - unfortunately we were on a Fall Foilage tour and the weather was awful! Could not really appreciate the benefit.

In late September, in Maine, on a beach? YES! What a great spot! Chaise lounges are on the beach for your use and the three mile space is great for "a walk along the beach" without crowds. Would love to come back here again

This is a nice and relaxing beach. There is a 10/12 foot tide so in the morning, you can walk far out and enjoy a wonderful view. The kids loved walking on the rocks and finding hermit crabs. You will need to purchase a parking...More

This beach has off street parking only, and I believe costs 20$ to park. Having said that, it is a great beach for taking a walk. Quiet and clean.

We were there off season so it was fine while we were there….but I think we read on a Maine travel website that dogs are allowed before 8:00am and after 6:00pm during beach going season. It's a lovely beach! Have fun!
