Activity Overview

Good Harbor Beach is a beautiful beach with great surf, lovely white sand, a concession stand, rest rooms, and showers. Parking fills up quickly on weekends and hot summer days.

Things to Do

During low tide there is a sand bar that opens up to the left so you can walk out to the rocky island. Low tide also leaves lots of room for digging, or passing a football or frisbee.

Boogie boards are welcome at Good Harbor Beach, and the waves are great at both low & high tides.

Walk along the shoreline or sit on the beach and enjoy the ocean breezes. This is a great beach.

Good Harbor Beach Insider Tips

  • Parking is limited, especially on weekends, so plan to arrive early to ensure a spot.
  • This is a carry-in/carry-out beach. You must take your trash with you.
  • To get to the beach, you must walk a bit on wooden paths over the dunes from the parking lot. A beach cart is helpful to carry your gear in and out.
  • The restrooms and showers are located at the snack shack.
  • Bring a beach umbrella for shade. Shovels and pails for digging and castle making. Plenty of drinks to stay hydrated, and snacks or lunch.
