Here's the secret to avoiding the crowds on the beach. Go in February! Yes, it was a bit nippy...translate that to amazingly cold..., but we had the place to ourselves and a few brave sea gulls...and no few to park. There's something about the ocean anytime of year that is magical. We didn't stay long, but it was wonderful, clean,... More

I have never been a beach person...until I visited Ogunquit! It is, by far, our favorite destination. The town is so quaint, not to mention all of the New England charm of the Maine shoreline. The beach has beautiful sand and a huge sandbar that allow you to walk out into the water far (the area is not rocky at... More

Beach is a bit crowded in summer but always clean. Parking fees go up on weekend but we only vacation once a year so doesn't really bother us.

I'm not an expert, but I've been to many a beach and I happen to love Ogunquit's beautiful, clean beach. Yes, the water is cold--refreshing on a hot summer day! Lovely to walk along, or just lay in the sun. It has crowded spots near the beach entrance, and quiet spots further along. There are a hand full of restaurants... More

Yes, this I one of the most beautiful beaches on the Maine Coast. Always clean. My one pet peeve if you are not a resident, the high cost of parking.

One of the great beaches anywhere. Freezing water but several miles of beach. Awesome tides. Short walk to the center of Ogunquit and the Marginal Way. Wonderful for all ages.

I can't say enough good things about this beach! I started coming up here in 7th grade on a family vacation with my then best friend and I can honestly say there is no beach around that even compares! Accessible by trolley, bike, skooter or car, once you turn on to Beach Street, you just can't help but feel the... More

The beach is beautiful, especially at sunset and there is plenty of distance to walk along the water front. One word of warning is watch when the tide comes in because it comes in fast and will end up almost all the way up to the rocks.If you are a kayaker or photographer, you will especially love the area. I... More

Great beach when its low tide! High tide there is not much beach at all. So space is limited. Low tide there is plenty of room!
