Beaches & Water Activities

Located on the western edge of Gloucester’s Stage Fort Park, Cressy Beach overlooks Gloucester Harbor making it a great spot for relaxing, soaking up the sun, and taking in the sights. Though it is fairly rocky in spots, the beach still offers plenty of sand and great swimming that make it a well-liked spot for those looking for a quieter beach experience than that of other better-known North Shore beaches. In addition to its proximity to downtown Gloucester, with its wide variety of restaurants, Stage Fort Park has its own small restaurant and ice cream shop, as well as many picnic tables and outdoor grilling areas for ocean-side family meals. Please note that while dogs are allowed in Stage Fort Park, they are not allowed on the beaches.
