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.

Ogunquit Beach reviews
Nice to visit the beach on this warm day in March, no fee to park and lots of walking around at low tide. We had brought our oldest here when she was a toddler and remembered having fun here. Easy..... more »
Finally we went to see this beach in Maine and walked along it when the tide was high. It's marvelous and beautiful and there were not many people walking there at this season and parking was free... more »
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....
