Reviewed July 22, 2014

Clean, great surf. The creek is warm at high tide. Water warms up in July and August. I can walk to it from my childhood home. Parking lot fills quickly on weekends. Don't park illegally. You will ticketed and towed...At low tide, you can walk out to a small island, Salt Island.

“Nice, Clean, and Small”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This is a beautiful beach that has it all. It may be one of the smallest beaches around, but it is very scenic. If you have been to Crane beach, this beach is similar to thst but much smaller version in everything (including beach amenities such as bathrooms, and showers). The water can be a little cold in the days that are ~80-81 degrees. Overall, it is nice.

Great place. Clean beach, great water! Nice local beach on the North Shore. Parking fills up FAST. Get there by 9AM parking is limited. Well worth getting there early:)

“My favorite North Shore beach”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Lifeguards, snackbar, bathrooms, gorgeous view - what's not to love about Good Harbor. A tropical storm made it a little "wavier" than usual on our visit - but once the fog cleared it was a beautiful day for sunning and swimming.

“Playful area!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Attended a wedding on the beach as part of a destination wedding! People at beach very respectful if not part of the wedding party. Clear water and clean sand.
