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.

The beach is super cute, we were there in May the water was cold but I bet it will get warmer in the sunmer. The beach was super clean, nice and smooth sand, it was crowded, so come early if you want to get a spot, wide long beach, good for walks as well. They also have a shade area with chairs. Great spot for family & kids:)

This may be unusual but I am not commenting on actual front Beach. I am commenting on the delightful bathrooms at front Beach. My husband and I visited the area on a very windy and cold day and we stopped at the restrooms. I was so pleasantly surprised at how clean they were. Granted it was not a beach day but I had expected the worst in a public beach bathroom and I was very pleasantly surprised.

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.

This beach is perfect for the family. It is small and your child can run and be free without fear of getting lost in a huge crowd. The only down part is that there are spots with a ton of tiny rocks, pebbles which are hard on the feet when attempting to go into the ocean...but nothing beach shoes or flip flops can't handle. Offers beautiful ocean views and harbor views. My daughter learned to swim here and can't wait to go back every year. If you are a beachcomber it is great for sea glass!! Paid street parking or there is a paid parking lot across the street from the beach for those planning to spend some time.
