Fodor's Review

Kennebunk has three beaches, each following the other along Beach Avenue, which is lined with cottages and old Victorians. The mostly northerly, and closest to downtown Kennebunkport, is Gooch's Beach, the main swimming beach. Next is stony Kennebunk Beach, followed by Mother's Beach, which is popular with families. There's a small playground and tidal puddles for splashing, and rock outcroppings lessen the waves. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (fee); toilets. Best for: walking; swimming.
