Ogunquit Local Travel Guide

Footbridge Beach

0.4 mile, 7 min walk or 1 min drive

We are one of the closest hotels to Footbridge Beach at around a 0.4 mile walk or 1 min drive to the parking lot! This picturesque beach is known for its soft, white sand that rivals most national & international beaches. If you’re a toes-in-the-water, butt-in-the-sand kind of beachgoer, we recommend hitting the beach as the tide is going out so that you can experience the warm tide pools that form.

Getting to the Beach

Multiple Pools

On the property

Not to brag, but we’re one of the few hotels in town with an indoor, heated pool – perfect for salvaging those beach days that couldn’t be. We, of course, also have an outdoor pool because we understand the need to make your friends jealous with your sultry, new tan. We’re also excited to offer fun & whimsical pool floaties for adults, children, & even drink cans!

Neighboring Restaurants & Bars

less than 0.1 mile, 2 min walk max

Our location is a prime one for foodies & drinkers alike. Without even crossing the street, you can visit Hooks on our left or BeachFire on our right. Hooks is a Mexi-Caribbean restaurant & bar with regular live music and BeachFire is a New American bar & grill that features a toasty, outdoor fire pit. If you can handle a walk across the street, Angelina’s is a swanky & locally-renowned eatery. *chef’s kiss* Enjoy!

Lawn Games & Grilling

On the property

What’s better after a day at the beach than throwing back a cold one & kicking your friend’s butt at cornhole? You guessed it, absolutely nothing. Ocean Acres sits on 6 acres of land so there’s plenty of room to spread out for games or picnics. While you’re at it, use one of our gas-powered grills, on the house. Dad sneakers not included, but highly recommended.

Trolley to Downtown

Across the street

If you must leave our little corner of paradise, *gasp*, we highly recommend taking the 10 min trolley downtown for shopping and more eating & drinking options. The trolley will pick you up right across the street from us for the low, low price of $3-5/ride. Don’t forget your cash, and relax knowing that you’ve time traveled back to simpler days. If you want the full, fabulous, gay-town experience, definitely check out Maine Street for a drink or drag show!

Marginal Way

2 miles, 6 min drive or 37 min walk

Marginal Way is the kind of picturesque walk that people write poems about, and it’s only a short drive or trolley ride away! This gorgeous, seaside stroll features views of the ocean & rocky coastline, charming New England-style homes, benches overlooking the beautiful sights, and informative plaques. It’s only 1.25 miles long & well-paved, but do bring sunscreen & walking shoes as the path doesn’t have much overhead covering and there are some slight inclines & declines. If you’re driving, there are paid parking lots at Perkins Cove & other surrounding areas.

Perkins Cove

2.5 miles, 7 min drive or 50 min walk

To experience the epitome of charming, New England scenery, look no further than Perkins Cove. This quaint harbor features views of the boats, draw bridge, shops, restaurants, and 1 of 2 entrances to Marginal Way. Make sure to have a lobster roll or rum punch on Barnacle Billy’s rooftop deck for the full experience! 🦞🍹

Ogunquit Beach

1.4 miles, 4 min drive or 28 min walk

If you like long walks on the beach, may I recommend a gorgeous, 1.6 mile (~33 min walk) from Footbridge Beach to the main Ogunquit beach? 🌊 This beauty is frequently ranked among the top beaches in the USA, but honestly, we think that’s an undersell. Good luck picking the perfect spot on this white sand beach, as you’ll have to chose between pretty, protected sand dunes or a natural lazy river with turquoise waters as your backdrop. Just pack your bags already 😉

Wonder Mountain Fun Park

1.1 miles, 2 min drive or 22 min walk

We are just a 2 min drive from the family-friendly Wonder Mountain. This park includes go-karts, mini golf, a human maze, & an arcade! Check their website for their most up-to-date offerings.
