This is a wonderful place to bring young children. Play areas with picnic tables. Surf is very mild and water depth is shallow for a long way out.

If you are in this area, this is a very nice place for a walk, particularly at night. It was shut down recently due to hurricane damage. I hope it re-opens soon.

Rockport Beach suffered a lot through the past hurricane season. I have been here both before and after the storms. It is a quaint beach town whose residents have truly rallied to bring the area back and they have done a great job.

If you have young children and want a safe place where dad can fish and mom can kayak and you can grill or walk to shopping then this is your park.

Beach was extremely clean and not overly crowded. There is a charge, but I think it was extremely worth it. Saw no evidence of jellyfish. We did have some small fish nibbling on our hands and toes.
