During the fall, this beach is a quiet tranquil setting for a walk. There is plenty of beach to walk, and parking is much easier to find in the off season. Dogs are allowed any time between September 15th and June 15th, and before 8:30AM and after 6PM between June 15th and September 15th.

Sandy beach that's great for a stroll or to sit and listen to the surf. Quiet after 5pm, even in high season. Pet friendly after certain times (check the posted signs to see when it's open to dogs; depends on the time of year and time of day).

This is a gorgeous, sandy beach. We went in September but I can imagine how wonderful this beach is in the summer!!

My experience with Goose Rocks Beach is one that dates back to the mis 80's. Labor Day week we head up to stay in a house on the beach and relax. The crowds are gone but the waves still crash on the long shore all night. The tide is huge here so the shell searching is pretty good at low tide. We didn't see the harbor seals this year but typically they are out on the rocks every afternoon. Is the parking tricky? Yea, unless you do your homework ahead of time and know the rules. I have never seen this beach full or busy, it is always nice and quiet!

Our favorite beach in Maine. Huge, gorgeous beach with plenty of space and interesting sites. Very fun when the tide goes out and leaves tidal pools and shells. Yes, during peak season you do need a parking permit. Not an issue for us. We rented a body board for our son at Aquaholics and enjoyed wading in the water and watching boats. Friendly local residents invited us to a smores beach bonfire, and The Tides is the perfect location for an after beach cocktail. Would be a dream to own one of the ocean side houses and spend the summer here. Perfection!
