A small, crescent-shaped beach located in Gloucester’s historic Stage Fort Park, Half Moon Beach offers up great views of Stacy Boulevard and downtown Gloucester. Surrounded on three sides by rocks, vegetation, and trees forming a protected inlet, Half Moon Beach is a perfect spot for your family beach vacation. As the beach is relatively small and sheltered, it is easy to keep an eye on busy children. The beach is handicap accessible, and features on-duty lifeguards and a large parking lot.
