We arrived here around 9am -- and had the beach to ourselves! It was low tide which allowed our kids the opportunity to explore the rocks. The beach is calm and quiet and extremely family friendly. We bought our parking pass at the General Store...More

Goose Rocks Beach has been my favorite beach for years, so I took a friend to show it to her. She loved it and wants to take her husband there too soon.

We never miss picking up some food and having a picnic in this area each and every time we are in Kennebunkport.

The beach is beautiful, the parking is difficult. Even with the parking permit you are not guaranteed a spot. If you can bike or walk there I would suggest doing that.

All the beaches on the Maine coast are beautiful. Be sure to spend a little time walking the shore when visiting the area.
