Ogunquit – Accommodations near Ogunquit’s Best Beaches
Ogunquit, Maine isn’t called the Beautiful Place by the Sea for nothing, and no small part of that oceanfront beauty comes in the form of some truly postcard-caliber beachfront.
With summer accommodations at an Ogunquit.com property—the Gorges Grant Hotel, the Milestone, the Cottage at Acorn Lane, or the Juniper Hill Inn—you’re mere minutes from these fabled sands, the perfect destination for a summer’s day! Nothing like some sand-between-your-toes, gull- and wave-soundtracked quality time along the soothing swash…
The Ogunquit Beach Complex
Our flagship sand-and-surf-scape is Ogunquit Beach, a 3.5-mile paradise set between the tidal Ogunquit River and the Gulf of Maine.
Ogunquit Beach includes, at its north end, Footbridge Bridge, a swath of seashore with a bit more elbow room accessed by a delightful plank footbridge over the Ogunquit River. It’s a mere five minutes’ walk from the Milestone: hard to argue with that!
Footbridge Beach offers a somewhat quieter alternative to Ogunquit Beach’s Main Beach, which is another great choice for sunbathing, beachcombing, and swimming. It includes plenty of options for renting beach essentials, including Ogunquit Beach ‘n’ Sport, which provides beach umbrellas, chairs, coolers, strollers, boogie boards, tubes, and other good stuff—plus the convenience of the hotel-to-seashore Beach Caddie service!
Just north of Ogunquit is another outstanding beachfront: the seven-mile barrier beach of Wells Beach. This expansive corridor of lovely, dune-backed sand offers exceptional birdwatching among other delights.
Other Waterfront Activities
