Ogunquit Beach is absolutely beautiful with three miles of white sand and
natural dunes. As parking is limited at the beach we recommend that you
enjoy a ride on the famous Ogunquit Trolley that stops in Perkins Cove, just across
the footbridge. On the Trolley you can relax and enjoy the breathtaking
sights that Ogunquit has to offer.
Ogunquit has so much to offer you can spend a week or or more and
never want to leave. But for those who love to explore… the nearby seaside
villages and towns of Kennebunkport, Kittery, Wells, and York are all just
a short drive away.
Some even like to use Ogunquit as "home base" and plan day trips to nearby
Portland, Freeport - home of L.L. Bean or Portsmouth, NH.
We hope to see you soon at the Riverside Motel – on the Cove in Ogunquit.
