Kettle Cove is located just off Route 77 at the end of Ocean House Road in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. This small scenic cove is perfect for a quiet getaway. With limited parking, the Kettle Cove parking lot fills quickly on sunny days, although many of the visitors may not be going to the beach; people may be enjoying the short hiking trails, grassy areas, and benches for overseeing the scenic views. The beach itself rarley gets over-crowded, has easy entry into the water with waves buffered by rocks in the deeper water. If sea-weed has accumulated on the beach, it can easily be brushed aside to make room for sunning and relaxing. Kettle Cove offers a variety of places to walk, explore, and enjoy spectacular views.
