Fortune's Rocks Beach
This two-mile expanse of sandy beach in Biddeford extends along the open ocean from Biddeford Pool to Fortunes Rocks, offering beach-goers lots of room to stretch out, relax, swim and play in the summer sun. Wave sports such as surfing, bodyboarding, skimboarding and surf kayaking are popular here, and the hard-packed sand is great for walking and jogging. Limited parking is available at both the south end and north end of the beach, accessed from Fortunes Rocks Road. Parking is by permit only, available from Biddeford City Hall, City Clerk’s office. Lifeguards are on duty from late May to early September. There are no facilities at Fortunes Rocks Beach.
