Couldn't get close to this when I was a kid many moons ago too many fish guts and raw sewage. You can swim here now if like cold Atlantic water. Great views of Rockland Harbor and the islands. decent parking, walking trail and picnic tables.

Stop here for lunch with your pup or take a walk. A nice walk to the beach or eat your lunch. Gorgeous views from the car or the beach. Picnic tables are available on nice days. Pet friendly.

like others have said, it was small, but the little park with benches and trail are very well maintained. It's a pretty spot. I went to 3 different places for sunrise earlier this week and found that this had the best view over the water....More

The beach at the south end of town almost seems hidden until you come up on the stairs. From the benches above or the beach below it provides you with a nice view of the working harbor.

Best place to go for walking/shopping/being with friends and family. Quaint little town of Rockland. Nothing beats being near the ocean. Small beach, but great atmosphere. Friendly people.

This is a good place for a few photo ops and a short walk. There is a grass area where you can set out a blanket and take in the scenery and they also have a few wooden picnic tables to enjoy a scenic lunch....More
