This beach is easily accessed from the road with ample free parking. There were only a few other people on the beach so we found it to be very peaceful and relaxing. The beach is clean and sandy.

This is just a great place to park and watch the water and air "traffic". Birds of all sorts love this area also.

We found this beach while driving around Gloucester. It was a tropical storm, but still very beautiful.

Parking is a little tough if you don't get there early but it's a really cute beach. On clear days, you can see all the way down to Boston.

This is a small beach with very small waves and is generally less crowded than other local beaches. However, the parking is all resident-only, unless you walk from Rocky Neck.
