Getting to Footbridge Beach

TLDR: On the scale of sassy speed walker (5 mins) to “I carry everything including my kids” (15 mins), the walk from our property will take about 7-10 mins for most of you.

The Town's Tea

We are *truly* one of the closest motels to Footbridge Beach! Want to know a local secret? Sometimes businesses lie about their distance to the beach! 😮  Luckily, at Ocean Acres Ogunquit, we want to be transparent with our guests. Sip on the town’s tea below, you beautifully petty beach-goer.

No offense to our competition, but some are straight up liars 😂

Motels all the way up in Wells will claim they have a 5 min walk to the beach, but spoiler alert, it’s really 20 mins or more. We don’t want to do that to you, because that’s mean & we’re not.

To keep the beach pristine and the town’s classic look, local laws make it so no new businesses can be built near the water. The lucky ones, like us 😊 , got grandfathered into their spot. As for (most) everyone else… they just lie! 99% of the motels in town are at least a 10 min walk to the beach, even if they have a nice view. Why are we talking smack you ask? Because we can back it up! 💪

The Honest Truth

What we can offer you is: 1) the truth! and 2) actually being walking distance to the beach! + 2 pools + 6 acres of grass + being surrounded by restaurants & bars.

The choice of where to stay is yours

… but if you do your own research, we’re confident you’ll come to the same conclusion as us: that we’re the best bang for your buck! 🤗

The walking distance from our hotel will be based on:

your level of ability
natural speed
how comfortable you are carrying awkward or heavy beach items
whether you're wrangling kids or not
