This is a terrific place. It's clean and easily accessible. I suspect that a wheelchair would even be okay if you could make past the first few feet of loose sand (no steps from the parking lot to the beach). The sand is very fine and somewhat difficult to remove off wet feet. It was chilly so there were only... More

We visited this beautiful beach at sunrise and sunset every day during our stay. What a beautiful place. There are no dogs allowed, but the few that the locals brought were very well behaved.

Ogunquit Beach is very pristine and big. I know that in the summer it can be more crowded but if you wish just walk a little farther on and you will be sure to get a spot. However in the spring and fall the beaches are nearly deserted with only the people who wish to exercise or just enjoy the... More

The beach is huge at lower tide and low tide. High tide floods most of the beach (timing is crucial, of course). The beach is accessible by walking from town or by car. The setting is quite unique really. Extremely long walks are possible, again at lower tides. Fishing seemed popular there, also.

My wife and I chose to get married in Maine last week. The beach and fall foliage was beautiful. By far the best beach ever. Of course we were there off season and the beach was not crowded at all. No swimming though because the water was quite cold. We enjoyed strolling along the beach at dusk and the sunsets... More

Beast beach in Maine hand down. Low tide is the best time to walk on the beach. The sand here is firm and make running on the beach easy. During the season June-Aug the beach is packed but once school starts the beach is much less busy.

The Witches of Eastwick was playing the night we went. Quaint theatre where every seat was a good seat. Definitely a go to place when you are in Ogunquit.

The sand is soft, the beach is long, there's food and shops very near by! I treated my Mom and Dad (Midwesterners) to their very first lobster experience at a restaurant right on the beach where we watched the lights of the ships sailing off into the sunset!! Best in late summer and early fall, the water is finally warm... More

We have never been to this beach and were pleasantly surprised. It has gorgeous sand and is large when the tide is out. Yes, water is cold but my husband and daughter were brave enough. I went in the river (cold) and floated down on my back. It was the best time ever! Do it if you are brave enough!

Just a great beach to walk any time of day. The sand is soft. Perfect for walking. One of the best beaches in Maine.
