Voted One Of The Best Beaches In The Country, Gooch’s Beach In Maine Is A Gorgeous Bucket List Spot
With over 3,478 miles of coastline (that’s more than even California!), it’s almost impossible to choose the perfect beach. Some are rocky, making for a beautifully scenic day outside. Others feature long stretches of sand perfect to laying around or making sandcastles. While we might find it impossible to choose our favorite, US News recently did! This Kennebunkport beach is high on their list. Does it make yours?

Gooch’s Beach is a popular destination in the summer, so parking might be hard unless you plan to arrive before 10:30 a.m. Remember that if you’re not a resident you’ll need to obtain a parking permit (even for just one day) at one of the parking kiosks on Beach Avenue. One day is $25 and parking can be found primarily in Beach Avenue around Oaks Neck to where Middle Beach ends.
