Goose Rocks Beach is well known as Kennebunkport's largest and most scenic beach.

The beach is perfect for surfing, great for walking, and it has soft sand.

You will be spoiled by the outlying Timber Island and Timber Point, which offers fantastic scenery you will not regret.

Take a look at the North of the beach. There is a Granite Point and Biddeford pool.

There are a few hotels and resorts in Goose Rocks Beach, located right by the beach.



This would be an excellent idea for one day visiting Goose Rocks Beach and find it interesting. If you plan to go around the area, the first place we like to recommend is Dock Square Coffee House. They served classic European style coffee, espresso drinks, and organic teas. Besides, it offers locally sourced pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and fresh juices.

After that, you can go to the Seashore Trolley Museum. It only took 10 minutes to go to the beach. The museum lets you explore three carhouses filled with beautiful, restored trolleys, and etc. You can shop the snacks and souvenirs at the Museum Store.

Last but not least, you can go to Goose Rocks Beach. It is the largest and most scenic beach. Goose Rocks Beach reaches out for three-miles of delicate sand. It is entirely protected in a coastline beach shape, so the surf is soft, and the sun is warm in the summer months. You will be spoiled by the Ocean's view and distant Timber Island and Timber Point, which offers a pretty picture. Sunbathing to surfing is the best activity here. Moreover, walk through Dock Square's shopping village, ride bikes, or take a trolley strolling the town to visit boutiques and restaurants.
