The southern coast of Maine is renowned for its white sandy beaches, and Ogunquit proudly boasts the most accessible and stunning beach in the area. And that's not just what we think; that's what travelers think, too! For the past three years, Ogunquit Beach has been awarded with TripAdvisor's Travelers Choice/Best of the Best as one of the top 25 beaches in the U.S.!
Noted one traveler, "Beautiful soft sand beach to walk, sunbathe, play, swim, sit and relax, enjoy the breeze and watch the surfers." Another said, "So much fun!"
Three miles of wide sandy beach stretch from Main Beach, near the center of town, to Footbridge Beach and North Beach. There is paid parking at all three beaches, but guests staying in lodging properties on Shore Road, Beach Street and Route 1 can easily walk to their own spot of Maine Beaches paradise.
Want to bring your canine friend along? Because our sand dunes protect endangered piping plover parents and chicks, dogs are not permitted on Ogunquit Beach from April 1-September 7, 2022. But you can bring your pup along from September 8, 2022-March 31, 2023. Dogs must be on a leash. In order to protect the quality of our water, dogs are never permitted in the Ogunquit River Estuary (which winds behind our beach and flows into the ocean).
