Goose Rocks Beach is the kind of idyllic spot that conjures up images of perfect East Coast holidays. The beach runs between Cape Porpoise and Granite Point and is backed by an archetypal seaside village.

The beach itself is a picturesque sweep of white sand stretching for almost three miles. What you won’t find at Goose Rocks is waves; the beach is sheltered by a number of small islands and reefs which keeps the crystal clear water pretty calm. Whilst you may not be surfing there’s plenty of other activities from snorkeling to looking for sea creatures in the tidal pools.

Much of the beachfront at Goose Rocks beach is privately owned, belonging to the beach homes that line the waterfront. There aren’t a great deal of amenities at the beach with no lifeguard or cafes, but you will find plenty of snacks on sale at the Goose Rocks General Store.
