Great for kids. Parking less than GH but too expensive. Due to storms last winter, they lost a lot of beach and sort of rocky this year. Good alternative to GH.

The beach is clean, perfect sand, the twin lighthouses can be seen quite clearly from the beach (and the Cape Ann Inn where we were staying is on this beach) - relaxing.

We love this beach! Clean sand and clear water. Not as overcrowded as Good Harbor or Wingaersheek. Parking is less expensive and there’s restrooms and changing areas.

We stayed at Cape Ann Motor Inn at the South end of the beach and it was simply beautiful. It is long wide stretch of gorgeous beach with a few rocky out croppings and an island with a couple lighthouses. Can't miss.

We just went to the area for a week at the end of September and this beach was great. Happened to run into a period of warmer weather in the 70's and capitalized on noone being at the beach. We stayed in Rockport but drove...More

Gloucester beaches are gorgeous. The problem with all their beaches are the fact that the parking charges are outrageous, so you are unable just to take a moment and feel the sand on your feet and not spend a great deal of time there. What...More

We visited Rockport in July. Because we rented an apartment on the main street, where all the shops are, the owner gave us a pass to us for Long Beach. We drove over on a Wednesday morning. The beach provided a perfect stop for adults...More
