Nice little beach, parking is very limited. You must get there very early for a spot. Beach is on the narrow side and backs right to the road with just a few places to get down from the road.

If your going to go go early and make sure you get a beach permit because without it you can’t park and with it you’ll park at least a mile away. Found this to be true with all beaches in maine

I have a 6 lb. dog and I've never been in an environment with more well-behaved dogs. they're all out in the evening and the sea air seems as calming to them as to us.

From 6 to 9 am this is a dog beach. They are peeing and crapping all over it. Most people appear to pick up the poo but still...yuck. There is no fluffy sand here to sit on so you need to bring a chair. I...More

Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunk. Great beach that is dog friendly mornings and evenings. Generally has great surf and nice sand. Paid permit parking.

Easy beach for families! Loved the soft sand & being able to walk to either side with the kids to look at rocks & see the boats.
