Gooch's Beach reviews
Come early! Parking is along the road and goes quickly! There is no parking lot. This beach seems to be the place for surfers. The strip of sand is narrow so this may not be the best beach for lounging. I was here in mid-August and this is beach is par for the course for New England beaches. Don't expect warm water. The sand is relatively flat and easy to walk on. It seems to be raked on occasion. There are a few port-a-lets at one far corner of the beach. Other than that, there is no other major infrastructure. Don't expect food or water for sale. Come prepared.
I lived a mile away from here for about 6 months, great beach with friendly people. It can be quite crowded at times depending on the tides and weather. Was happy to not have to deal with the payed public parking!
