COVID-19/Coronavirus Update re: Kennebunk Beaches

  • Gooch's, Middle and Mother's beach are open for conventional uses.  All beach users must follow social/physical distancing guidelines and remain 6' apart from those not in your family group, and users must wear a facial covering (mask, face shield) if that physical distance cannot be maintained. 
  • Sidewalks remain open for "active use" only. Walking, running, walking dogs (on leashes) is allowed, but sitting, beach chairs, sun shades and beach umbrellas are not permitted on the sidewalks.
  • Dogs are permitted on Gooch's, Middle and Mother's beaches under the following guidelines:  leashes must be no longer than 6' and cannot be retractable. From June 15 through Labor Day dogs are only allowed on the beaches before 9AM and after 5PM. Dogs may be off leash before 9 AM but must remain on leash after 5PM.
  • Parsons Beach is also open. There is limited parking available. 

Kennebunk Beaches include: Gooch's Beach, Middle Beach and Mother's Beach 

These long, wide sandy beaches are located along Beach Avenue, off Routes 9 & 35 and offer the perfect place to walk, sun yourself, play in the surf, look for sand dollars or just enjoy the sight of the waves rolling into shore. The string of beaches, some sandy, some rocky, that stretch along Beach Avenue from Gooch's Beach past Lord's Point are all connected by sidewalks — a feature that makes this great stretch of seaside a favorite with walkers and joggers. 

You can drive to and park in the available parking spots along the stretch of Kennebunk beaches. However, beach passes are required to park at the beach. Residents can purchase their passes at our Town Hall. Visitor passes (non-resident) for a day, a week or for the season are available at kiosks located on each of the three (3) beaches or the Town Hall. 

There are lifeguards on duty at Gooch's Beach and Mother's Beach from mid-June through mid-September.
