Drove out to see the beach, during our visit as first timers to the area. As folks who own on Cape Cod, we really loved this beach. While quiet, as it was still a bit early (altho post Memorial Day), to enjoy the cold water, we found it so lovely and peaceful. The houses facing the ocean were amazing of... More

Great beautiful beach and very safe for young kids. Need to buy passes from police station or from your hotel. Limited parking as in ALL BEACHES IN KENNEBUNKPORT.

I've been lucky enough to go to Goose Rocks Beach nearly every summer since I was a child. We go with friends and family. I really like to go later in the day (usually when the crowds head out) and sit bundled up (if needed) in the late afternoon/evening sun. It is a wonderful beach for walking. Kids love it..lots...

Goose Rocks Beach is a great beach for long walks - beautiful sand, nice views…..dog friendly but with restrictions during peak season.

Just went by to see what the beach was like and couldnt find anything that looked like a public entrance. A wildlife refuge at the end of the road, but get good directions for parking if you want to visit.

We recently went to goose rocks on a beautiful sunny day. The kids loved it and it was pretty quiet. In the past we've gone here and found the beach overwhelmed with seaweed. However this time it was gorgeous and others I've talked to say that they've not experienced the beach being littered heavily with. Seaweed. It seems like a... More

Hardly anyone around in October, about 6 people on an enermous beach. Surrounded by holiday mansions, no parking charge in October, fine area.

The well packed sand makes the ideal surface for a walk, even if you cannot normally walk on a beach in soft sand. The beach was almost deserted on an ocvercast September afternoon but we would have walked further and stayed longer had there been public restrooms.

This is one if the greatest hidden treasures in the Kennebunkport area! Either summer or after Labor Day, if you like very long walks on a beach where everyone is friendly , says hello and you still have privacy this one is it! Wonderful for children since when the tide goes out every 6 hours they can have lots of... More
