I happen to hit the beach when the sun was rising and the moon setting. So awesome! Great photos I took. A wonderful spot.

We love strolling in the Ogunquit Beach District with its variety of restaurants and shops. The spacious beach is very relaxing no matter the weather. Seeing so many people from many places is also fun. The shops, with their interesting and creative souveniers, provide good ideas for gifts to take home.

The Halloween decorations are displayed in front of the various business and worth a walk around the Ogunquit Beach District to see and photograph. We even sat on the comfortable chairs to watch the waves roll in. The October fest is this last week in October so enjoy.

Even in October the beach was beautiful, and very clean. Several people flying kites and many camped out on the cool crisp day. The youngest running in an out with the tide. The river basin behind the beach next to marginal way was fun to see at low and high tide. Looks like a totally new place.

The expansive Ogunquit beach, beautiful and clean, is family-oriented, with eating and shopping alternatives, as well as castle-building and hiking, running, walking. The parking area adjacent to the beach also has a trolley transport, which is convenient for those too tired to walk back to their inns or hotels. People swim, surf, shell, chase the birds, dig holes, watch the... More

This beach is nice to hang out at because of two different sides, one facing the ocean the other facing shore. Kids can play in shallow pools left by the tide and adults have a nice long smooth shore to walk on or toss a ball around. If you don't want to pay the money to park just take the... More

During a 5 day stay in Ogunquit, we would get up before sunrise, and walk for miles along the surf during low tide. The beach is spotless - no seawood or washed-up creatures, very few shells - just smooth hard packed sand. Perfect conditions for us oldtimers with sore knees. A nice place for an afternoon picnic as well. Love... More

A nice walk on the beach. Not many in the water this time of the year but still some in wet suits. Kids are back in school so it's fairly quite. The beach all but disappears at high tide.
