We have a strong emotional attachment because this was my Mother's favorite beach when her family had a Summer house in nearby Kennebunkport. The parking is sparse & there are no facilties nearby. The beach is actually private but beachgoers are allowed as long as they are respectful of noise constraints, littering & Mother Nature.The drive along a long tree lined lane is especially pretty and serene. Having a house in a nearby town we use that beach mostly but a few times each year we walk on Parsons Beach for nostalgia's sake. It is a beautiful spot.

Very little parking. The beach itself is not very large. Lots of debris n seaweed was there. the parking area was more fun for the kids.

This is a great Beach! Water meets sand. Sunshine abounds. I like the beach. Also, rosehips. And there's a seagull other there.

Get there before 9:00-9:30 to get a parking spot. If you don't like we did, you drop off at the beach and park a 1/2
mile away near the main roads. Still worth it. Very nice beach.
