You can get some beautiful photographs from the breakwater but be very careful is you decide to walk out on it. It is not a level easy walk!

Good for all ages, especially on a beautiful day. Many folks stop and take photos while on this ‘path’.

If you visit Rockport, be sure to walk on the breakwater at the end of Bearskin Neck. It is an easy walk on the rocks and great for fun photos.
