Fodor's Expert Review Goose Rocks Beach
Three-mile-long Goose Rocks, a 10-minute drive north of town, has a good long stretch of smooth sand and plenty of shallow pools for exploring. It's a favorite of families with small children. Pick up a $15 daily permit at the Kennebunkport Town Hall. Dogs are allowed, but only before 8 am and after 6 pm. No facilities are available at the beach. Amenities: parking (fee). Best for: walking.
