Very small beach. Quiet. We were the only two on it. We had so much fun finding TONS of sea glass. We couldn't believe how much there was on such a little beach. It's right in downtown Rockland.

Couldn't get close to this when I was a kid many moons ago too many fish guts and raw sewage. You can swim here now if like cold Atlantic water. Great views of Rockland Harbor and the islands. decent parking, walking trail and picnic tables.

Stop here for lunch with your pup or take a walk. A nice walk to the beach or eat your lunch. Gorgeous views from the car or the beach. Picnic tables are available on nice days. Pet friendly.

like others have said, it was small, but the little park with benches and trail are very well maintained. It's a pretty spot. I went to 3 different places for sunrise earlier this week and found that this had the best view over the water....More

The beach at the south end of town almost seems hidden until you come up on the stairs. From the benches above or the beach below it provides you with a nice view of the working harbor.
