goodharborbeachsignFor the section of coast between Boston and Maine, Gloucester is home to the best beaches hands down. Good Harbor Beach took my breath away – the sand is sugary white, and the beach is a deep wide curve, and the view of the open ocean is stunning. The paved parking lot is only medium-sized so it does fill up early in the morning.

Season: Memorial Day through Labor Day

Parking Fee: $20 per vehicle on weekdays, $25 on weekends and holidays

Bathrooms: Yes! Open 9am-6pm

Other facilities: Showers and snack bar, open 9am-6pm

Off-season: There is a porta potty and no parking fee. Snack bar, showers and bathrooms are closed.

What else: Visit at low tide so you can walk the sandbar out to Salt Island!
