This is a wonderful open beach that is dog friendly. Everytime we are in Kennebunkport. We stop here ! Evening time is excellent.

I used to jog on this beach every morning. Only downfall is when the tide comes in, there is barely any sand....water comes up to the wall just about. It is kind of funny watching everyone moving their towels and gear back up on the sidewalk. Kids love this place playing on the rocks though!

It is a nice beach with parking on the street. Especially on the weekends you have to come early to find a parking spot. We visited in June, thus, the water was too cold for us to get in.

We enjoyed our walk on this wonderful beach. It is very well kept up and the dog walkers take good care of their dogs. The locals all know one another and we enjoyed walking with our friends.

A nice beach though gets smaller as the tide comes in. Need parking pass and it can be hard to find a spot on a nice day. A little easier off season. And the water is cold!

We went out our way to visit Kennebunkport and were going to move on to the beach after a stop for breakfast. We had picked my 80 year old Mum up from Boston airport (visiting us from Isle of Man for a month) and were travelling back to Canada. It was 8am and we drove into a car park in... More

Nice sandy stretch, but very good instead of excellent because the surf was very quiet the days we were visiting. Parking passes are required from June 15th on into the summer.

spacious, good for walking or surfing when the weather is bad. Don't park without a permit; or risk a ticket/fine!
