View was great, has several accommodations overlooking the beach, but definitely somewhat limited. We went with two kids aged 7 and 9 for two days and they had a good time. There are tide pools at low tide which they loved, sea glass hunting, and...More

lovely small town beach. Swim in the cool water or search for sea glass, shells, crabs and snails. Very picturesque - surrounded by old, quaint buildings and beautiful homes.

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.
