“out of the way beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This beach is beautiful. It can be crowded in the summer and the parking can be a challenge. The beach is clean and the perfect place to sit or walk and watch the waves. Good place for kids because it is so flat and minimal rocks.

“A dog owners' and dog paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This beach is a primary reason why Kennebunk is rated one of the most dog-friendly towns in New England-a huge area with surfing, swimming, tanning, etc. Also spectacular views.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Lovely deserted beach. We had this place to ourselves, so we just found a nice bit of sand & sat & relaxed in the sun doing a bit of reading.

My husband and I travelled with our dog who thoroughly enjoyed running and playing on the beach since it was off-season and dogs were allowed. Her first time in the ocean also.
