Right across the street from where I stayed. Great to walk and beach comb for sea glass and watch the birds.

It’s so beautiful and clean. My only complaint is the water was cold. It was breezy also but very enjoyable and the sand was so fine.

Front Beach is handicap friendly, with a lifeguard on duty most of the time. The seaweed was in abundance due to a bad storm. After the town cleaned it up, bugs were at a minimum.

Maybe I'm predudist living in Rhode Island with beautiful sandy beaches, but I found this beach no comparison. Except for the view which is beautiful. We saw the beach at low tide and it was covered with people. Later in the early evening the tide...More

lovely small town beach. Swim in the cool water or search for sea glass, shells, crabs and snails. Very picturesque - surrounded by old, quaint buildings and beautiful homes.

Sorry, I don't know about Rockport rules. Gloucester has rules about dogs on their beaches but does not allow them "in season" which is April to September. Check with Chamber of Commerce Information booth or call police... More
