Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water.

The area is known for being a lesbian-, gay-, bisexual-, and transgender-friendly community. Consider browsing the boutiques near the water and enjoying refreshments with a view over the beach.

  • Incredible view. You come for that tranquil spot by the water. We went on the busiest Labor Day weekend and it was wonderful to eat food by the water despite the crazy rush of people. Ordered seafood platter and it was perfect, lightly breaded and fried perfectly without it tasting greasy and heavy. But it came with store bought chips. The chowders were average. High price food due to the view.
  • My third attempt to get seated.. Beautiful place. Help could be better at service...love the views.. I have been there before. Food was good, service was good...this year I will have to reevaluate....
