Beautiful walking beach

Beautiful walking beach and was able to collect shells. Even though it was November it was worth going to the beach.

We were able to just ride along the coast and beach and were amazed at the views and homes along the way - it was almost unbelievable !! Such an outstanding area.

It was cold when we went but we did walk a little on the beach and then watched the waves come in. Very peaceful and a nice walkway and plenty of parking. Beautiful beach

Beautiful Downeaster beach with plenty of parking. We were here during offseason so I'm guessing parking might be a bugger during season. Had my dog on beach and he loved it, though the seagulls were not fond of my dog. Rocky outcropping for exploring, and nice views around the cove.

Kennebunkport was very fun to visit. We visited on a fall Sunday and had lunch there in town. There were many shops open and several beautiful churches. We went to Kennebunk Beach and took a few pictures. It isn't a busy area or want the time of year we were there but, a nice place to visit since our very... More

The water is very cold, but the beach is broad and flat. It would be perfect for games or sports on the beach.

One of the best beaches in southern Maine! Great for walking and people watching. Very relaxing. The parking price is a rip off so try to get a parking pass from your hotel or BnB if you can.

This beach was wonderful! The water was still warm and comfortable in mid-September and the waves were so much fun to play in. A lot of amateur surfers were present and fun to watch. Plenty of room and a nice walking path above the beach with benches. It wasn't cheap to park there for the day but we were lucky... More

Of course you don't get to see the houses of the Bush Family, but who cares. The village is nice and well maintained. You can easily do to whole tour by foot. Very interesting boutiques. And as it is the case in that region, water is fairly cold. But the beach is superb.

We usually come for a week in July or August but could only holiday for a weekend in September this year. The weather was fantastic but our beach experience was ruined by the dogs on the beach. As September brings with it dogs being allowed on the beach at least 25% of owners have NO control of their dogs. This... More
