We go to Wells/Ogunquit as a tradition after Thanksgiving, and love strolling on the sandy beach, regardless of the weather. If there is a storm at sea, the waves crash into the shore and entertain us for awhile. This year, it was balmy and wonderful...More

Nice firm sand beach for walking. We've spent a lot of time here over the years and it's like visiting an old friend when we just returned after 11nyears!

Just what the family needed. Quiet beach not overcrowded. Will need to pack a cooler for lunch / snacks. Water cool but refreshing. Enjoyed some down time, loved the scenery, and lobster from local market after the beach

We stopped here after visiting Ogunquit, and found it to be a beautiful beach with a few very nice shops. Great opportunity for ocean pictures. Plenty of bench seating if walking on the beach just isn't your thing.

There is a municipal parking lot (fee) off of Island Beach Rd. Follow walking path to jetty/beach area.
