“Beautiful Spot”
Review of Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach
Ranked #14 of 38 things to do in Rockland
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 July 2016

We were staying close by for a week so we walked here almost every day. We even saw a rainbow one evening. Liked the large ball made out of railroad spikes. Nice sidewalks, benches and a public restroom. Nice view of Rockland Lighthouse and many boats in the harbor. Clean and safe area!

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. If you're a beach person, don't get your hopes up, but it's a sweet spot to spend a few mins watching the harbor or just enjoying the day.

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.
