Even when the weather is stormy, it is beautiful to see the waves crash and watch the brave surfers riding the crest of the waves.

We spent last weekend here, and walked along the beach every day for a few hours. There are lots of dogs frolicking about, and the weather was perfect. We have started to make KBT an October getaway, and will continue to do this each year!

Go here for a lovely walk on the beach, collect some shells and enjoy the scenery. Nice white sand and i´m sure its a great pace to go swimming too.

Easy to find, easy to park (it was not peak season) and enjoyed watching the surfers doing their thing.

Nice beach with waves for surfing, room to walk the dog and kids. A little cold in October but active with the wet suit fans.

On a coastline filled with great beaches, the competition is keen. Elsewhere this beach would get an excellent, but there are just so many to choose from all within a very short distance. If Kennebunk beach is not your style, then just try one of the others close by.

I had forgotten how magnificent the Maine Coast is. This perfect fall day underscored that magnificence! As we drove up the coast we were treated to the many beauties of nature. On this particular day the ocean was extremely animated. The waves crashed against the shore and rocks creating spray and a rainbow of colors. The long roll of the... More

The most amazingly dog friendly beach ever. Locals and tourists alike with their pets so very friendly. Beautiful ocean sight lines, lobster boats, sailboats and surfers. Great sunsets. And if you're lucky, you might say hi to Barbara Bush and the first puppies!

Not as big as some of the other beaches visited but nice this time of year because not crowded. Kennebunk good to visit and beach not far away. Try to hit it low tide so more area to enjoy.

Most of the beaches around this area are incredible. The water is so cold it takes your breath away just as much as the scenery does. It was a wonderful time but once the crowds start coming, the mood changes a bit. Best to go early to catch the best glimpse of the water and to feel the fresh morning... More
