I've been coming to Kennebunk Beach since I was a kid. My grandparents used to live two streets away so we'd walk through the neighbor's yard and be at the beach. I love it there. Parking can be tough if you don't have a sticker....More

This is a beautiful, long beach. Be careful when parking; although there are lots of roadside parking spaces, most have restrictions on them.

Kennebunkport was adorable with tons of shops and galleries. Make time for Mabel’s Lobster Claw Restaurant.

Want to stop the car and actually feel the spray right off the ocean, want to smell the salt air and fill yourself with what Maine is all about then pull over and stop at Kennebunk beach

Wanted to see the ocean. There is one problem. With all the parking, we saw only 1 set of stairs going down to the ocean. Can't believe people were swimming in the cold water. I put my toes in and that was enough for me....More

Beaches in Maine are not like your usual beaches, so this is one of the better ones! Easy parking nearby for pay during day time hours, with portapotties available. Not much beach/sand width, but a nice place for a beach walk and to just enjoy...More

Nice little beach, parking is very limited. You must get there very early for a spot. Beach is on the narrow side and backs right to the road with just a few places to get down from the road.
