“The only beach for me”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

As a child I grew up going to the private Moody Beach and staying in a cottage this area has been what I call a beach. At low tide there is so much room that even when it is crowded. High tide can be tight but I am used to it. We always skip the main beach and head over to Footbridge Beach. The beach is all sand and no rocks. Even the Ogunquit river at high and mid tides can be fun for families and there is always people crabbing there.

“Ogunquit Beach is the best!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

This beach is one of the best I have ever been to in New England. The waves are incredible and the beach just keeps going and going. We walked 30 mins in one direction and we still weren't to the end! The entrance is always VERY crowded but if you arent afraid to walk a little ways, you can always get a spot. We always bring our own food and drinks, but there are snack shacks and restaurants at the entrance. The town of Ogunquit is also great to spend time in for dinner or shopping after a long day in the sun. If you walk down Marginal Way, two restaurants in particular that stand out are Jackies Too and MC Perkins Cove.
Have a blast and get there before the summer is over!

Incredible beach. Water is clean and cool. We love jumping in the current of the lazy river and going for a ride.

At low tide, you won't find another beach anywhere with so much room....the sand/beach goes on forever! You can walk just about 2 miles before getting to homes in Moody Beach. Absolutely wonderful....

“Ogunquit Beach is my favorite beach in the Northeast”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Just love Ogunquit Beach!! There is so much to do here. You can boogie board the waves in the ocean or float along the Ogunquit river when the tide goes in or out, walk along the beach. When the kids where little they loved to play in the pools of warm water that is left behind when the tide goes out. You can sit under the canopy on benches & now even Adirondack chairs. There is a bathroom & a foot wash in the main parking lot. I usually come early & find parking in town. The main parking lot can be expensive, but worth it. They do have a 15 min drop off area if you want to get all your gear out first before parking in town.
Check the tides before you come. The beach is very wide during low tide, but very small during high tide. I usually walk into town to look in the shops that are close by & I always walk Marginal Way ( a beautiful footpath along the rocky cliffs of Maine that lead you to picturesque Perkins Cove). Perkins Cove has restaurants & shops along with real lobster boats.
There is a trolley if you want to see the rest of the town or ride to Perkin's Cove. Just $1.50 for Adults and $1 for children 10 & under,this is one way.
There is sooo much to do at Ogunquit Beach for all.
