The Tides Beach Club is less than 15 minutes from all the sites and attractions of Kennebunkport’s Dock Square, but we have so many things to do on our property and at nearby Hidden Pond, many of our guests never make it to town!

Beach Games

Relaxing is great but sometimes you need the adrenaline rush of some friendly competition. Choose from laid back favorites like bocce ball, ladder golf or corn hole or round up your friends and other guests for a spirited game of beach volleyball.

Stargazing Parties

Ask your Concierge when one of the good folks from The Astronomical Society of Northern New England (ASNNE) will be visiting us. Throughout the summer months, these passionate volunteers share with our guests their high-powered telescopes and binoculars as well their exceptional knowledge of the night sky and all its wonders.

Stand-Up Paddleboard Rentals

The most fun you’ll ever have getting a core workout. One of our “Beach Tenders” will be happy to set you up with a stand-up paddleboard, life jacket and paddle to enjoy one of the fastest growing water sports in Maine.


Our tandem and single kayaks are free for guests. Just ask one of our “Beach Tenders” for a paddle and life jacket and then have fun exploring our protected waters and the nearby inlet to that leads to Batson River.

Goose Rock Beach Running Routes

Our running guide has 2-, 5- and 10-mile routes that will take you by some beautiful scenery to make your fitness routine more enjoyable than ever.

Nature Walks

Goose Rocks Beach is flush with beautiful birds and abundant sea life that are all visible from shore. Be sure to take time to explore!

Supper Shuttle

As much as we would love to see you at The Tides Restaurant every night, we’re here to help you enjoy all of Kennebunkport. During the summer months, our Super Shuttle makes stops at Hidden Pond, The Boathouse, Ocean Restaurant, The Dory, and The Burleigh. It’s the best way to enjoy a night on the town without hiring a cab, designating a driver or paying for parking.

Goose Rocks Beach Parking

Street parking is extremely limited at Goose Rocks Beach, but as a guest of the hotel, you’ll have access to our lot so you’ll never have to worry about your car.

Hidden Pond Pools

As a guest of The Tides Beach Club, you have full access to all of the amenities at our sister resort, Hidden Pond.

Hidden Pond has a family-friendly pool adjacent to the Main Lodge as well as an adults-only pool next to their amazing on-site restaurant, Earth. Check out either pool during the day and be sure to check out Earth at night!

Tree Spa at Hidden Pond

Please ask your concierge to reserve one of Tree Spa’s amazing skin, massage or facial treatments.

Hidden Pond Art Classes

Each day, Hidden Pond’s artist-in-residence teaches the basics as well as the finer points of painting with watercolors. Amy is a patient and inspiring teacher who can unlock the creativity in artists of all ages. Please ask your concierge for details.

Nightly Bonfire at Hidden Pond

Each evening, the Hidden Pond staff stokes two bonfires, one by the Main Lodge and the other a short stroll from Earth. Ask for a s’mores kit and you’ll be provided with everything you need to make the best dessert of summer.

Morning Yoga at Hidden Pond

Start your day with deep breathing, healthy stretching and gratitude with the expert instructors at Hidden Pond. Classes are for all experience levels and all ages are welcome.
