- A few things -
Tides Beach Club is perhaps one of my favorite summer time destinations and for a reason. It’s an easy commute from New York City and the ride is effortless, especially when there are plenty of fish shacks on the way to enjoy a Maine lobster roll – yum!
Now on to Tides, it’s perfect. It’s located on Goose Rocks Beach – one of the best in Kennebunkport. Everything is at your fingertips, from a luxury oceanfront room, to a happening bar and restaurant area to a very peaceful beach and chairs to enjoy all day long. The feel of Tides is chic, yet laid back and relaxing. The only reason to leave is to visit their sister property, Hidden Ponds and dine in their award winning restaurant, Earth. If you are looking for a luxury quick getaway from the New York area, Tides is your spot!
