“Late Afternoon Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

No charge to park when we arrived at 6pm, beach is open till 8. It was low tide and there were plenty of nice shells.

Good side beach we will visit for a day time swim soon.

and the water was perfect.

Excellent white sand, cool river-like inlet with great sea life, good place to body surf and the beach has outstanding views of stately homes and breathtaking cliffs.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Beautiful sandy beach. The tidal creek is fun for kids! The water is cold but that is expected on the North Shore. Kids loved how clear the water is!

“One of the best beaches in New England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Love Good Harbor Beach. Soft sand, clear water and great tidal pools for the little ones. Parking fees a bit steep and restrooms need improvement.
