Good Harbor Beach

Fodor's Review

This beach has calm waters and soft sand, and is surrounded by grassy dunes, making it perfect any time of year. In summer (June, July, and August), it is lifeguard patrolled and there is a snack bar if you don't feel like packing in food. The restrooms and showers are clean and wheelchair accessible, and you can pick up beach toys at the concessions. Amenities: restrooms, showers, concessions. Best for: swimming and playing on the shore. On weekdays parking is plentiful, but the lot fills by 10 am on weekends. In June, green flies can be bothersome.
