Visit Halibut Point State Park and in one area you will witness the most beautiful birds and wildlife as well as the huge quarry and the Atlantic ocean crashing against the rocky shore below. From Long Beach to Folly Cove you will find spectacular Ocean views including twin light on Thatcher Island.

Rockport has a number of beaches offering variety which include Long Beach, Cape Hedge Beach, Pebble Beach, and Front and Back Beach. The downtown and Bearskin Neck is filled with specialty gift and candy shops, art galleries, and some of the best restaurants in the state.
