Old Garden Beach or Old Garden Landing is located on Old Garden Road in Rockport, Massachusetts. This beach is popular with residents and divers. Tucked away in a neighborhood, Old Garden Beach offers ocean views and a grass field in addition to the beach area. The beach is surrounded by rocks of varying sizes and a large sea wall, making the beach-space limited due to all the rocks. During high-tide the beach nearly disappears although there is plenty of grassy area to wait the tide out. With calm water and a scenic view, it’s easy to see why Old Garden Beach is popular with the residents of Rockport.
