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

Go off season, park your car easily and go for a beach walk with Fido. Great for a sunset and perfect for a picnic lunch. Favorite time is in the autumn after the summer crowds are gone or on a mild day anytime off-season.

Off season, Kennebunk Beach is a beautiful beach for all ages plus dogs. Parking is free and its not crowded even on weekends. Bathrooms facilities are provided and are immaculate. A relaxing and scenic sandy beach.

Within easy access of the town, my wife and I recently visited the beach for a short relaxing afternoon break from sightseeing on an unusually warm day in the Fall.

Only an hour and a half away,(from Boston) this easy to get to spot offers sea side charm, relaxed atmosphere, and beautiful long walks on at least three different beaches.Plenty of places to choose from to eat; from clam shacks, to four star restaurants.

Although the water temp was far too cold for us, the beach was still a great destination with its wide expanse of sand and pounding waves..
