BEACHES
Footbridge Beach
The 3.5 miles of pillowy sand covering the southern Maine oasis of Ogunquit is among the most immaculate stretches of coastline in New England, if not anywhere. Of course, it can be near impossible to appreciate, thanks to the throngs of lobster-red tourists that descend from French Canada and other points north. In-the-know beach nuts avoid the main strip altogether and head across town to this more secluded spot, reachable by a short hike along a plank-and-piling footbridge over the Ogunquit River.
Ogunquit Beach ‘n’ Sport 207.351.7840
For all your beach rental needs-Chairs, umbrellas and so much more!
Ogunquit Beaches
Enjoy the 3 ½ miles of white sand beach voted among the 10 best beaches in the U.S. Access the Main Beach from Beach Street (center of town). The Main Beach offers public restrooms, beach chair, umbrella & float rentals, take out and indoor restaurants. Footbridge Beach offers a quieter alternative with access on Ocean Street (1 mile north of town center). Public restrooms are available at Footbridge Beach.
Wells Beach
Wells Beach is a seven-mile barrier beach separated from the mainland by the Webhannet River. There are several sections of public beach, which is broad even at high tide. The 4000-yard-long beach is edged with sand dunes and sea grasses. Land and shore birds and waterfowl can often be spotted due to the nearby marshes. The town provides several parking lots near this beach: one is at the end of Mile Road and one at the end of Atlantic Avenue near Wells Harbor (turn left at the end of Mile Road). At the Mile Road parking area, there are restrooms, a restaurant with a take-out window, a playground and a viewing area with benches. Nearby is an arcade, shops and other eateries. Elsewhere along the beach, there is limited free parking and several privately owned parking lots. Resident beach stickers are sold at Wells Town Hall, and nonresident parking passes may be purchased at any public parking lot.

HIKING/WALKING TRAILS

The Marginal Way
In 1923, the magnificent Marginal Way was given as a gift to the Town of Ogunquit by Josiah Chase of York and is now a paved footpath beginning (or ending) in a corner of Oarweed Cove near the harbor, then running for 1 ¼ miles to the marvelous expanse of Ogunquit Beach. Once called “the margin” because of its patterned development along the rocky edge of the cliff, the origin and preservation of this truly precious piece of natural beauty was not the result of far-sighted conservation planning, but of the dealings of a shrewd businessman and some stubborn, persuasive “locals.” This delightful, exhilarating walk meanders by tangled bayberry and bittersweet bushes, gnarled shrubs of fragrant pink and white sea roses, shaded alcoves formed by wind-twisted trees jutting out onto high granite outcroppings, and humbling views of the mighty Atlantic with its varying seasonal moods. Although the bends and inclines along the way are rather gentle, most walkers will choose one of the thirty memorial benches dotting the path to sit and rest, to contemplate and sometimes to paint the panorama of sea, surf and sky which daily unfolds amid noisy protests from the roiling ocean and screeching gulls. After a freak storm damaged the path in 1991, the Committee to Restore the Marginal Way and a capital fund were established to ensure its continued preservation and maintenance. Each year more than 100,000 people take this scenic path along the rugged cliff line, and, while Maine has several similar ocean walkways, Ogunquit’s Marginal Way is undoubtedly the most unique, the most popular, the most painted and the most beloved.

LIGHTHOUSES
Cape Neddick-Nubble Light
Cape Neddick Light, also known as The Nubble, York. Rising 88 feet above mean high water, it was built in 1879 and sits on small island, or nubble, which was first named Savage Island in 1602. The 41-foot cast-iron tower is central to the town’s holiday celebrations and is festooned with lights every year. It is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the nation and can be viewed from Sohier Park in Cape Neddick.
Goat Island Light
Goat Island Light, Kennebunkport. The brick lighthouse was first constructed in 1835 and then rebuilt in 1859. It sits on Goat Island at the entrance to Cape Porpoise Harbor. A boathouse, oil house and keeper’s quarters also stand on the island ledge. It was the final Maine lighthouse to be automated in 1990 and is now owned by the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust. The lighthouse can be seen from the wharf in Cape Porpoise Harbor and is accessible by boat. Interior of tower can be toured if caretaker is available.
Potland Head light
Portland Head Light, Cape Elizabeth. The lighthouse, built in 1791, was commissioned by George Washington and was the country’s first lighthouse built under the new government. The old tower, built of rubble stone, still stands as one of the four colonial lighthouses that have never been rebuilt. Whale oil lamps were originally used for illumination. It is probably Maine’s most famous and photographed lighthouse. It sits at the entrance to Portland Harbor; from its deck, more than 200 islands can be seen. The keeper’s quarters are now a museum. Lighthouse, accesible by car, is located on the grounds of Fort Williams State Park, open from sunrise to sunset daily.
Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse

It is typical of the “spark plug” style of the period and is 54 feet high. It’s accessible by a 900-foot-long breakwater built in 1951 using 50,000 tons of granite. The structure is open for scheduled tours during the summer months.
