Greater Cape Ann is blessed with an abundance and variety of beaches for you to enjoy all year round. From Good Harbor and Wingaersheek Beaches in Gloucester to Singing Beach in Manchester-by-the Sea and Crane Beach in Ipswich, warm summertime sands and beautiful shores await. Rockport’s Front Beach is a walk-to family beach in the seaside village on Sandy Bay, and Pebble Beach, Cape Hedge and Long Beach all offer up-close views of Thacher Island’s Twin Lights at low tide. And when carefree summer days come to an end, the cooler months are still great for an invigorating beach walk or sightseeing.

We invite you to find your own special beach here and keep coming back year after year!
