Owner description: Located off Ocean Avenue, this popular walking path winds along Kennebunkport's rugged and scenic coastline.
Reviewed 3 November 2013

This easy shore-side walk offers scenic ocean views and glimpses of palatial summer homes. It starts at Arundel Beach, which is beside the sinuous, two-lane Ocean Avenue, just across from the Colony Hotel. It passes St. Ann's Episcopal Church, which is a splendid and rustic stone seasonal chapel, and the Walker’s Point summer-home compound of former President G.H.W. Bush. Among the walk’s more intriguing natural landmarks are Spouting Rock and Blowing Cave. The winding walk can be continued inland onto Turbats Creek Road. Walkers and bicyclists then can turn west onto Wildes District Road and onto Maine Street to make a 5-mile (8-km) loop back toward the village’s Dock Square. Parking is possible at Arundel Beach or in rare turnouts along Ocean Avenue. Be sure to have a camera – at least for the shorefront part of the walk and at dawn and dusk (on most days).

We walked from our hotel to Walker's Point. Lovely views non stop. Million $ homes, gorgeous shore, beach and rocks. Great photo opportunities and stop in St. Ann's along the way.

This section of Kennebunkport runs from the foot of the Colony Hotel Beach, all the way to Walkers Point. there is no prettier walk along the ocean and the beautiful Maine houses. Just past St. Ann's Episcopal Church on your right (definitively worth a visit, beautiful old stone church right on the ocean), the walk opens up past "pebbley beach" and then on to "spouting rock" and the Dark Shadows house. Around the corner and you quickly approach "Blowing Cave" with Walkers Point just across the inlet. Nice on a pretty day, but even more fun when the surf is up. The walk is just over a mile, very easy, beautiful scenery!
