They stretch along Beach Avenue from the breakwater at the mouth of the Kennebunk River to Lord’s Point for 1 1/2 miles. Sidewalks extend the whole way for those interested in combining exercise and people watching. At the northern end, Gooch’s Beach, at 3346 feet long, is the largest stretch of talcum powder sand and waves…
A busy beach, Gooch’s has room for beachcombers, castle builders, body surfers, sun seekers, swimmers and skim boarders. Gooch’s Beach is the place to go when the weather worsens and the surf gets too rough for swimmers but is ideal for intrepid surfers.
Tucked in a sheltered cove at the southern end is Mother’s Beach, a perfect sand beach, which is the smallest of the Kennebunk Beaches, at 750 feet. With a playground right on the beach and gentle waves, it is a popular choice for families with youngsters.
