“Kennebunkport Beach ROCKS!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

If you ever get a chance to look for a small quiet beach in Maine - especially - just after the season - this is the beach to go to. After September 15th you can park and enjoy this gem. We sat for 2 to 3 hours and watched the tide go out. Portable toilets helped us empty contents that made us feel refreshed and giggly. Laughter was the rule of the day when we met another couple from Michigan. Hilarious and joyful. Eye candy included bikinis and cute kids playing in the surf. And all told - a wonderful time!

Again - Kennebunkport Beach ROCKS! ROCK ON!

“Sandy Beaches in Maine, Who Knew?”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Although the water temp was far too cold for us, the beach was still a great destination with its wide expanse of sand and pounding waves..

Great place to walk and relax. There are areas for children to play, walk your dog, some quit areas by the rocks to read. Just great!

“Clean soft sand, but get there early”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

The other reviewers complaining about the parking need to get their schedules straight - the kind clerk at the general store put us on the right path on our first night on how to manage this. Get there before 11 am - simple. Turn right onto the last residential street. Park there for free. Walk 1.5 minutes. You are on the beach. The end. No $50 or $16 or whatever down the drain.
The beach was not over crowded. It was clean. The water was crispy Atlantic. There were waves but not dramatic ones. The beach tended towards an older crowd - so quiet. Lovely beach homes around it. No services, but the town is 5 minutes by car. Two clean-ish portapotties. Enough rocks and shells on the beach to go for a little exploring. Very pleasant day at the beach.
