Goose Rocks Beach

Goose Rocks Beach

Three miles of soft, white sand look out on a cove protected by a rocky barrier reef. There are no lifeguards or facilities at Goose Rocks, and a dearth of parking keeps the crowds to a minimum. It’s a great beach for strolling, and a big intertidal zone means it’s happy hunting for sand dollars at low tide. Watch for harbor seals chilling on the rocks.
