Ogunquit's Family Spots

Thank you for considering the Meadowmere Resort as the Ogunquit hotel for your family vacation!

One of the biggest attractions to Ogunquit is the ocean setting. The stunning coastline of Southern Maine provides big time fun for your family trip in any season. From paddling the Ogunquit River to building the best sandcastle, our staff is accustomed to providing your family with memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Ogunquit Beach

Considered one of the best family beaches in New England, Ogunquit Beach is over three miles of white sandy beach along the Southern Maine Coast. With blue ocean water as far as the eye can see, one can easily understand the lore of the beach for kids of all ages. We recommend exploring the tidal pools together to take in the salt air and find a fun sea creature or two.

Wecloming generations year after year, Ogunquit Beach features volley ball, paddle boarding and surfing, oceanside cafes, stunning sunrises and perfect kite flying. While spending a day at the beach together, you and your kids will build amazing sand castles and endless boogie boarding in the ocean breeze.

A destination for summer vacationers and perfect for exploring in the Spring and in the Fall. Uncluttered, immaculate and a vast oasis of white sand, Ogunquit Beach is truly a ‘beautiful place by the sea’ and a wonderful family beach too. And the best part is the Meadowmere Resort is just a short walk or quick trolley ride away!

Marginal Way

Enjoy this picturesque ocean front path as you and your family walk the cliffs of Marginal Way. Wind along the path and reconnect while enjoying the ocean view from one of the many memorial benches. Mother Nature is at her best – Spring brings sea roses, summer the scents of the beach, and fall the crashing waves upon the rocks. Hidden in between rocky Maine coast and the sea are tide pools teeming with starfish, sea urchins, and creatures of the ocean deep – A special treat for the family to experience together.

A gift from the late Josiah Chase and restored by Ogunquit volunteers after the 1991 October ‘no-name’ storm – the inspiration for the movie “The Perfect Storm” – Marginal Way mesmerizes and enchants.

The north entrance to the beloved Maine shore line of Marginal Way is just a five minute walk from the Meadowmere Resort – making this ocean setting moments away from your family’s accommodations.

Perkins Cove

Home to one of the only wooden footbridges in the United States, Perkins Cove is a lively scenic harbor in Ogunquit. Imagine standing with your family on this beautiful little draw bridge as lobster boats come and go. From classic ocean views to fun shops to sharing a Maine lobster roll, Perkins Cove is full of hustle and bustle in fishing and summer seasons – and perfect for finding a treat in the Spring and Fall.

Today, a family vacation to Ogunquit isn’t complete without a visit to Perkins Cove to enjoy the restaurants, shopping and more.

This perfect seaside place is just a trolley trip away from the family friendly The Meadowmere Resort.
