Old Garden Beach, a small sand and stone beach with an adjacent municipal park, offers a beautiful view over Sandy Bay and grassy areas for picnics with your friends and family. This intimate, very small beach is secluded enough to unwind from all of your vacation activities, yet easily walk-able from town. Eat your lunch at one of the picnic benches while taking in the great view. This is a beautiful place, and one of the more unique beaches north of Boston.
Directions: From Downtown Rockport, follow Route 127A (Mt. Pleasant Street) to Norwood Avenue to Old Garden Road. The small beach parking area is restricted to those with resident parking stickers.
