The Best Dog-Friendly Beaches in Maine Are in Boothbay Harbor

Hendricks Head Beach

Located on Southport Island, about a 15-minute drive from Linekin Bay Resort, Hendricks Head Beach is not just a great place to visit for its charming, quintessential Maine feel. Its dog-friendly beach is perfect for letting the pup romp around in the water and explore. Take a walk around the island where quaint architecture greets visitors in the form of a country general store and a privately-owned light station. If the plan is to swim, a short doggie-paddle over to Kitten Island presents a fun adventure for able-bodied dogs. Just be sure to take necessary precautions when entering the water.

Barrett Park

The short walk to Barrett Park from Linekin Bay Resort means fun beach and park walks for dogs and dog owners staying here. Bring Fido out for some exercise and see what the park has to offer. Explore the beach, play in the water, or pack a picnic! Then, walk back to Linekin Bay Resort and do it again the next day!

Popham Beach State Park

If a day trip sounds like a good idea, make it to Popham Beach State Park for a pet-friendly outing. Venture across the park and discover the Civil War-era fortification at the opening of the Kennebec River. Portions of the beach welcome on-leash dogs year-round, as marked by signage, as well as well-kept walking trails and other parts of the park. Admission is $6 for Maine residents or $8 for nonresidents.
