Good Harbor BeachGloucester's Good Harbor Beach is a beautiful beach with powdery white sand, and great waves, facing the Atlantic.

There is a reasonably priced concession stand (burgers, grilled cheese, drinks, slush, and ice cream), rest rooms, and showers. Good Harbor is particularly amenable to families and children.

During low tide there is a sand bar that opens up to the left so you can walk out to the rocky island. Low tide also leaves lots of room for digging, or passing a football or frisbee. Boogie boards are welcome at Good Harbor Beach, and the waves are great at both low & high tides. Check the tide charts.

Parking at Good Harbor Beach:
Parking fee is $20 during the week per car; $25, weekends. Parking is limited so plan to arrive early to ensure a spot.

This is a carry-in/carry-out beach. You must take your trash with you.

Awesome Beach
This is a beautiful beach and great for kids. Since the cost is a bit prohibitive, I don't go often, but this one is a gem.
