“Small but lovely”
Review of Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach
Ranked #14 of 39 things to do in Rockland

Reviewed 15 December 2015

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. There is a kiddie park just up the street where many parents take their kids after the beach. It can get fairly busy during lunch hour as well as during high tourist season. My opinion is that there are a few other beaches like Lucia Beach close by that are better and less...smelly. But you can find a decent amount of shells and sea glass. That's a plus.

There is a small parking area, picnic tables and benches on the grass overlooking the water, and a walking path that leads to the beach. Many locals use the trail, hard to find parking during the lunch hours.

Near the end of the Rockland Boardwalk. Small beach with sand and rocks with beautiful view of the harbor. Read, swim, picnic. Steps down to beach. Free. Very peaceful. Dogs not allowed during summer period.
