The downtown has some charming shops to browse in for your first afternoon and 14 art galleries which is a lot for a town of this size. Ate at... More

Very clean beach. Great for family vacations. The water is swallow with mild waves. There is plenty of picnic tables and shaded areas along with bathrooms, playgrounds, volleyball pits and grills. Plus all for only $5 per day!!!!

A great launch for the boat and place to gather with friends and family. Get a hotel or vacation rental to round out a perfect getaway.

nice clean beach in the middle of a great little town. Great for small children because not the big waves like that on the island.

Extremely clean, safe and adjacent from where I was staying at. If you decided to take a trip to the area, you need to visit the Rockport Beach. There is a minimal fee to get in but they offer many amenities.

We stayed at Goose Island State Park. We came to Rockport beach two afternoons. The beaches are well kept and clean.

The water is about knee deep for at least... More

On the bay so there is minimum wave action - which can be good for kids. Shallow shelf so you can walk several hundred yards into the bay and the water will be to your knees. Nice sand. No chair or umbrella rental so bring what you need. There is shower/toilet facility and a picnic area.
