We had a great time at Fortunes Rock Beach, visiting almost every day during our two week vacation here. At low tide there is a lot of exposed sand, and you get to really understand how you can walk out 20-40 yards into the water...More

We stopped here late morning to look for seaglass and my first thought is that it’s a “real” beach. The beaches in Kennebunkport were really small compared to this one. We saw surfers in the water as well. Note that there is permit parking only.

Beautiful rock formations / geology on the beach. Clear water. You can park close to the beach after you get a permit. High tide erases the entire beach area.

Wish we could have gone at low tide. But, we still found some sea glass! Difficult to find beach entry but worth it.

This is my go-to study break spot! It is a beautiful, quit beach. Its wonderful for a walk and usually isn't too crowded. Its also great for a beach day if you're looking for something quieter than places like old orchard.

We were able to park and see the lovely beach and ocean, but the beach is blocked off by some very large stones that line the highway and prevent all but the most agile from getting down to the water. There is an entrance pathway...More
