Gooches beach which is the northern most beach is a nice surfing spot. I body board and the surfer's are very friendly. You need a parking permit during the summer only.

“Happy dogs and people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

Kennebunk Beach is a gift to dog lovers. During the off season, the beach is full of four legged friends with very well behaved owners who are respectful of the beach and clean up after their pooches.

“Our local beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

The beach is very good and is great for a long evening stroll. Unfortunately, the town is charging so much for the parking permits and limiting the hours you can be there without a permit, that it isn't worth buying one for a walk one or two nights a summer so we stay home.

“Walk there from town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

This is a small beach, but my kids loved the ability to walk there from Dock Square. It's a bit rocky, but the kids loved being able to find rocks to skip along the water.

“Nice stop”

This is a small beach but close to town. Nice to take a chair and coffee and spend some time unwinding.
