I had fun dipping my feet in the water and writing my name on the sand. We took tons of pictures and it was very peaceful at night. I want to go back!

Beautiful beach. Just long enough to get a good walk in in the morning. Lots of sun bathers come later in the day 9:00 am. Very close to town.

A small beach right in Rockport, with beautiful views onto the town. Wade in or just lounge and watch the waves and clouds roll by.
