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

Love love love it here. Pristine huge sand beach with lots to do for kids and adults. Great crab hunting for the kids. Grown ups can relax or paddle board and not worry about kids . Can't wait to go back. Not crowded at all.

It's worth the $12.00 fee to park at Goose Rocks to enjoy this wide, pristine beach. It's very family friendly, with safe areas for children to play, fly kites, test the waters. No dogs allowed on beach, no smoking, no boomboxes: just good clean fun.

Even though the whole parking permit thing $12 for the day, regardless of how long you stay, is a bit of a cash grab - this beach is one of the best and is truly beautiful! Watch for the tide times though, as we were lucky to have been there for 3.5 hours before the tide came in to the... More

I have been to many beaches in South Africa, Ireland, the UK, and mainland Europe over many years and Goose Rocks beach is one of the most beautiful I have seen and been to. The deep sandy beach overlooked by attractive beach houses, is very wide, over 4 miles in length and the sand spits and the islands offshore ensure... More
