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. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming. 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.

The beach is always pristine - soft sand, not a piece of seaweed in sight on the shore or in the water (we joke that nothing can grow in those cold temps).

Sat on first floor patio next to the road and also had a view if water side. Great for people watching. Apps: Lobster bisque, 4 star. Only two bites of lobster and menu promoted more Scallops wrapped in bacon, 4 star. The taste was wonderful, but two of the scallops were super tiny compared to the others. I would expect uniform size for scallops and not feel I'm really getting way less food. Entree: Jerk chicken sandwich and fries, 4.5 stars. It didn't have the heat and full jerk flavor, and I assume the honey jerk flavor of this sandwich is why. Fries crispy and delicious. I would def come back to try other options.
My meal was delicious 😋 Perfect view of the water had a yummy whole soft lobster with steamed clams and Lobster soup it was all really good. The service was a bit slow and there was alittle confusion on who my waitress was but all and all a good experience food was great would definitely go back again. I ate there in October no line no wait was told in season you could wait up to two hours if that’s the case it’s not worth it.
