This beach is really interesting, the tide seems to come in quite fast and watching the sand bars disappear is really fun!

We had been to this beach in the past but never in the summer. It a large, very large, beach. There is a tremendous amount of room even at high tide and the beach does get extremely crowded. It is also expensive to park there--$25 for the day and no re-entry allowed. It has very nice bathroom facilities and several... More

Ogunquit is a fabulous beach. The white sand stretches for three miles. Walk 1/4 mile up the beach from the parking lot to get away from the crowd, and you will feel like you have a private beach.

While the water may be a bit chilly at times for a good swim, you can certainly enjoy a nice long stroll or jog on the beach. The sand anywhere near the waters edge to almost the high tide mark is packed sand and easily walkable, and some also ride bikes / strollers, etc. You can walk for at least... More

First, what I like the least is the size of the beach at high tide. It is very narrow. But, at low tide the beach is very, very wide with beautiful textured sand miles of it. The Ogunquit River flows behind the beach and empties into the sea at the south end of the beach. This river creates a "LAZY... More

This was one of the nicest beaches I have been to. It is clean and I especially like the non-smoking atmosphere. Very nice community as well. Will definitely go back for more R & R next year!

At low tide the beach goes on forever and ever- flat and a great place to play, relax, fly a kite and relax. High tide, you're in trouble- the beach disappears! Know your tides to plan your day!
