Blissing out in Moody Beach

From your Moody Beach vacation rental, you can enjoy a host of beach activities. The soft, pale sands are perfect for families to bask and frolic on. The nearby shores of Drakes Island Beach are popular with surfers keen to ride the frothing Atlantic waves. Meanwhile, the long jetty at the neighboring Wells Beach makes it popular with fishing enthusiasts. A short drive away, in the picturesque harbor town of Kennebunkport, you can charter a boat for river cruising, sea fishing, whale watching, or lobster tours.

See the light in Moody Beach

This stretch of Maine coast has nearly a dozen historic lighthouses guarding its rocky shore, perched on plum locations on craggy rocks with dramatic ocean views. One of the most scenic, and most photographed, is the Nubble Light at Cape Neddick. It dates back to 1879 and if it doesn't get you hooked on visiting these iconic landmarks, nothing will. If you're staying at your Moody Beach vacation rental with kids, don't miss a trip to the Wonder Mountain Fun Park, a family-friendly attraction with 2 mini golf courses, maze, and indoor arcade in Moody Beach.

Lazy summers in Moody Beach

Summer is the most popular time to rent a Moody Beach vacation rental, but this stretch of coast is dotted with pretty fishing villages that can be enjoyed throughout the year. Each bursts with independent boutiques, gift shops, upscale restaurants, and galleries. Spring and fall are perfect for exploring their many charms at a slower pace without the high-summer crowds. But winter can also be a charming season to visit. Take long, oceanfront strolls beside crashing Atlantic breakers before heading back to the warmth of the local cafes, bars, and delicious seafood restaurants.

Moody Beach: a coastal paradise

The big draw at Moody Beach is, of course, the long stretch of sand. But the coastal paths are equally beautiful, allowing you to hike the headland for beautiful views of the ocean and see if you can spot the local marine life from the shore. Close to Moody Beach, the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge is a protected area of salt marshes and dunes, which attracts migratory birds and is home to some small mammals, birds, and wildflowers not found elsewhere in Maine. Visitors can explore on foot or by kayak, fish, bird watch, or go shellfishing.
