Goose Rocks Beach has been my favorite beach for years, so I took a friend to show it to her. She loved it and wants to take her husband there too soon.

The beach is beautiful, the parking is difficult. Even with the parking permit you are not guaranteed a spot. If you can bike or walk there I would suggest doing that.

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!
