Check out sandy Good Harbor Beach, known as one of the cleanest beaches in the area. Bordered by greenery, the beach also features a small island that's reachable by foot when the tide is low and a picturesque peninsula with charming villas overlooking the sea. Head out for a swim in the clear ocean waters, lie in the sun with a drink by your side, or rent a boogie board on site and hit the waves. With a very gentle seafloor drop, the site is suitable for families with children and for nonswimmers. The beach has a snack bar and restrooms. Plan your visit to Good Harbor Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Gloucester tour planner.
Good Harbor Beach reviews
Wonderful place to swim and sun. Long strand, great views. Lots of surfers, families and dogs (seasonally). more »
A favorite beach for us - very sandy and flat. There are sometimes good waves for body surfing and boogie boarding. Great for kids. $30/day for parking. Free after 4:00 or 5:00. Visit Long Beach... more »
