Planning Your First Gaycation In Ogunquit, Maine

Planning Your First Gaycation In Ogunquit, Maine

Whether you've just come out or if you're a longtime member of the LGBTQ community, Ogunquit, Maine welcomes you! From beautiful beaches to nightlife, to outdoor adventures, Ogunquit is your one-stop-shop for a queer-friendly gaycation. Come experience all that this village by the sea has to offer.


Experience the beauty of Ogunquit beaches solo, with friends, or with a partner. Walk along the romantic footbridge and catch a glimpse of wildlife. New England is typically known for its majestic, rocky beaches, but not Ogunquit. Here, the beaches are covered in soft, white sand that is ideal for getting your tan on, or swimming in our crystal clear waters.


Book a room at the The Dunes on the Waterfront hotel and find yourself within walking distance of many restaurants and the renowned Ogunquit Playhouse. Catch an LGBTQ-themed musical performance, such as Menopause The Musical® or Kinky Boots, or swing by a drag show at the Mainestreet Ogunquit and experience the largest LGBTQ nightclub in northern Maine.

Outdoor Adventures

If walking is your thing, make sure to walk through central Ogunquit and visit the boutiques and shops and pick up a memento from your trip. Grab a bite at the BeachFire Bar and Grille and take in the salty sea air before an evening hike, or view Ogunquit from a different perspective – the water! Hop on one of our boat cruises to see the lighthouse, or learn how to trap a lobster Ogunquit-style.

Whatever your fancy, Ogunquit has the perfect gaycation for you. Bring your friends or make friends while you're here! Ogunquit is full of queer-friendly people who are waiting to help you create the gaycation of your dreams. Leave your worries at the door and contact us to step into an LGBTQ haven for a weekend of fun and relaxation.
