Disappointed, $20 street parallel parking. Lots of seaweed in the water & along the shoreline. Most of the beach is hard sand. No amenities. Ogunquit is much better.

Whether you want to walk or sit, read or absorb the sun this is a nice beach. Sand artwork, surfing, dogs running, people just chilling, enjoying the scene- it's all here. No fishy smells either.

This beach along with all the beaches in the area are not to be missed. Nothing compares with the beauty of the Maine coast. Kennebunkport has so much to offer with restaurants, shops and places to enjoy the cool breeze.

Really nice beach for families. So cool to see how much it changes from high to low tide. Great for morning walks or just to sit an people watch.

I have had a vacation home on this beach for fifteen years and think this is the best place to be. I like that the beach is in a strictly residential area; there are no stores and not even ice cream trucks are allowed to sell here. We are located right before beautiful Kennebunkport going North on the Maine Turnpike... More

This is a busy family packed beach that was not that attractive although sitting on the benches n walkway was pleasant. I would not go there to sunbathe but would seek out quieter sandier beaches.

This is a great walk along the coastline. Some days can be really wavy. We enjoyed climbing up some of the sang areas as there small hills of sand with may marine life creatures crawling about. Really cool was when waves would crash in and spout up really high in the air. We didn't spend the day here, just went... More

This is a lovely beach, except for the cold water in Maine! LOl Anyway, love sitting on the beach when visiting my parents. Very pretty area and pristine beach.

Clean and peaceful, with rocky beach and some large rocks in the surf. This is what I think of when I think of a New England beach. Quiet and relaxing, you can spend hours just looking (and finding) sea glass
