Ogunquit, ME’s Favorite Beach: Ogunquit Beach
It’s the middle of summer in New England, and that means it’s the height of beach season here in Ogunquit!
Sandy strands don’t come much more postcard-perfect than our very own Ogunquit Beach, and with a vacation stay at one of our Ogunquit.com hotels, this splendid seashore tempts just a pleasant stroll away from your guestroom or suite.
Ogunquit’s Champion Beachfront
Ogunquit Beach forms a 3.5-mile-long finger of soft, light sand between the estuary of the Ogunquit River and the Atlantic Ocean. Grassy dunes, a pearly and powdery backshore, the gentle swash, the sunrise horizon: It’s really not all that surprising why Ogunquit Beach has landed so many accolades and awards.
You’ll find assorted beach gear for rent at Ogunquit Beach—from beach umbrellas to floats—and plenty of refreshments in the vicinity, making it delightfully easy to really put in some blissful hours here.
The sand peninsula of Ogunquit Beach also includes Footbridge Beach, named for its access on a plank bridge across the Ogunquit River. It’s normally a quieter reach of shoreline. Farther up lies North Beach. With such a generous scroll of sand, you can take your pick in terms of top-grade New England beach days!
